Abstract: The issue of how the colonial past could be constructed as history is of central
importance in Pacific Islands and Australian history. The article approaches this
issue by discussing Hermann Hiery’s revisionist history of the Madang Revolt of
1904, and various representations of the Forrest River massacres in Western Australia
in 1926. It argues for postcolonial histories that are guided by ethical considerations
and informed by poststructuralist concerns.
