Something To Look At (Post#22) : Wadjemup Burial Ground
Photos of the day are all about Wadjemup Burial Ground. During my visit in Rottnest Island Museum, I found articles or artifacts that tells that most of the aboriginals died in the island were buried somewhere without recognizing its burial-place. This area before has been used for recreation activities as it was not acknowledge as a sacred site. This means that the respect on buried native people and because they were prisoners was not given accordingly. Lots of aboriginals have been buried across the island. And when I found that they identified an aboriginal burial site, I can think that at this time of ours, the aboriginal community in the island will be able to make effort to tell to people so that a burial site will be able to received respect that it deserve. These photos are part of Rottnest Island Tour October 2016.
