Serving Our Country


A comprehensive history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s participation in the Australian defence forces.

Indigenous Australians have been a part of the defence forces since the Boer War, yet they experienced considerable racism in service, and exclusion from full citizenship rights on their return to civilian life.

Serving Our Country, edited by Joan Beaumont and Alison Cadzow, with contribution by  Mick Dodson, John Maynard, Noah Riseman, and others, documents the bravery, strength, and emotional distress of Indigenous military personnel and their families while chronicling their extended battle for recognition.
