In this thesis I aim to investigate how Indigenous people in southeastern Australia construct identity through place two hundred and eighteen years after the first arrival of European settlers and the dislocation of Indigenous people from Country began. I will use the construction of possum skin cloaks as a case study through which to examine this. A thesis submitted to the School of Political and Social Inquiry Monash University (2007) in partial fulfllment of a Bachelor of Letters (Honours) degree.
