Role in the Project
Cherie is a Research Assistant on our project. She is primarily responsible for the overall management of our database, including undertaking archival and archaeological research. In addition she assists in logistics aspects of our field research, and is generally willing to help out wherever we need assistance.
Why She’s Excited About the Project
This is a fantastic opportunity to work on a community driven project. I have been interested in contact/frontier archaeology for many years and believe these sites represent a turning point in both Indigenous and European history and culture. The ARC NMP project can potentially result in genuine relationships being made with a range of people who have important stories to tell. It can also reveal versions of Australia’s past that were erased, consciously or unconsciously, over time. As an archaeologist this offers a unique opportunity to contribute to the story of the colonisation of Queensland and bring to light the reality of frontier violence. The neglect in archaeology, particularly with regard to the NMP is significant for all affected cultures. I am hoping to demonstrate the possibilities for alternative interpretations through research into material and documentary evidence.
