Tidal Kin: Stories from the Pacific
Tidal Kin recounts the stories of eight Pacific Islander visitors to Sydney during the 18th and 19th centuries. Alongside cultural objects, a soundscape of voices of present-day compatriots and descendants recount their ancestors’ stories in their own languages. Once a welcoming Pacific hub, Sydney changed in 1901 with the advent of Federation, and the implementation of the White Australia Policy. Tidal Kin: Stories from the Pacific reclaims the shared Pacific histories that once flourished in the region.
