Robert Orsted-Jensen – Historian at University of Queensland

This paper suggests that there is a way to arrive at an approximate, dependable estimate of the number of Aboriginal frontier casualties at the hands of colonial Queensland’s Native Police Force. By using data that provides accurate information on the number and duration of Native Police barracks and camps, the frequency of patrols, the surviving records of clashes and dispersals of Aborigines, as well as reported body counts, it is possible to arrive at a defensible mathematical estimate of the quotient of state sponsored frontier killings across some forty years of frontier interaction 1859-1897. Furthermore, this makes it possible to suggest a better estimate of the total Aboriginal death toll at the hands of both Native Police and settler colonists.
In this account the authors have conservatively arrived at the startling calculation that approximately 65,180 Aborigines were killed in Queensland frontier clashes alone between the 1820s and the 1900s. When the non-Aboriginal frontier death rate is added to this figure, it rises to an aggregate of 66,680 – a number substantially exceeding the Australian combat death rate in World War One.

 Let's Talk

25 June 2014

Eva Cox is a feminist activist who still believes it is possible to make societies more civil, responsible and fair. She is a sociologist by trade, a researcher who finds evidence for the benefits of valuing social goals over economic ones. Her two grandsons make gender fairness a serious priority, so they too can choose the roles that suit them, not just those prescribed by others’ assumptions. Her political interests are fired by her arrival here as a post war refugee. She is a Professorial Fellow at the Indigenous House of Learning at UTS.
