Coota Girls Corporation

Stolen Generations project

The Coota Girls Corporation will host a five-day meeting in Cootamundra to film a tour of the Cootamundra Girls Home to preserve their collective memories of the Home, so these can be shared with descendants and community members.

The Coota Girls Corporation is concerned that incorrect or incomplete accounts are being provided about their collective experiences in the Home and the human rights abuses they experienced under the Aborigines Protection Act 1909-1969. This is important, since full knowledge of human rights abuses is a form of reparations and helps to prevent future violations.

Directors of the Coota Girls Corporation will oversee the planning, filming and editing of the film to ensure it reflects the collective views of survivors.
