As the colonial fleet arrived on Eora Country in the late 18th Century, Patyegarang befriended the colony’s timekeeper, Lieutenant William Dawes, gifting him her language in an extraordinary display of trust and friendship, which now inspires our imaginations about ‘first contact’. Bangarra liberates Patyegarang from the library shelves, putting spirit into her heart, as a striking visionary and educator.
