You don’t have to look far around Berowra or most parts of Hornsby Shire to see rock engravings, middens and other evidence of ancient Aboriginal habitation. Sometimes, however, it’s hard to see the locally-resident descendants of indigenous people – either because of their own ignorance about their ancestry or because of their denial of it, both of which are legacies of Australia’s sometimes brutal, sometimes well-intentioned, but nearly always hurtful treatment of Aborigines in the past. Hornsby Council recently produced three videos focusing on local residents of Aboriginal descent. In this one Les Bimson, a descendant of the Guringai, talks about his rediscovery of his Aboriginal identity and connections with the land.
