Re-imagining Australia - Voices of Indigenous Australians of Filipino Descent Sat 8 Dec 2018 – Sun 3 Feb 2019 9:30am – 5:00pm WA Maritime Museum Manilamen refers to the first Filipinos who arrived in Australia to take part in Australia’s thriving pearling industry starting in the 1860s. Re-imagining Australia: Voices of Indigenous Australians of Filipino Descent shares the stories of some of the ‘Manilamen’ – who they are, where they lived, the challenges they faced as young men far away from home, and their contributions to the development of a multicultural Australian society – as narrated by their descendants in Broome and Torres Strait. Re-imagining Australia: Voices of Indigenous Australians of Filipino Descent, is based on the book with the same title by Dr Deborah Ruiz Wall OAM with Dr Christine Choo. The exhibition is supported by the Philippine Embassy in Canberra and the Philippine Consulate in Perth. Feature image Caption: Freddy Corpus in full diving suit.
