Barani (Yesterday): Indigenous history of Sydney city website
The City of Sydney has developed a website promoting the Indigenous history of the city. It's called "Barani", an Aboriginal word of the Eora people - the original inhabitants of the place where the City of Sydney now stands. It means "yesterday".
Barani is an exciting way to explore Sydney's Indigenous history , from the earliest pre-contact traces to the most recent events. The website features historical themes, a searchable database of source material about the history of Sydney's Aboriginal people, audio grabs of Indigenous people sharing their history, images and artwork, contacts for Indigenous organisations, a time line, and glossary with interactive map of place names in the city.
It is hoped that "Barani" will function as a point of exchange of information and discussion for everyone interested in the history of Indigenous Sydney. The site is designed to be interactive, to take on board news items, new references, and to encourage discussion.
