Indigenous Australians have had many things to say about the British navigator and explorer Captain Cook.

Since his voyage along the east coast of Australia in 1770 and after British occupation in 1788, Cook was woven into their interpretations of the colonial encounter and its legacies. In this lecture, Maria Nugent, Australian National University, will use objects and artworks to examine Australian Indigenous people's representations of Captain Cook over time.
