Court Case Of Bennelong Essay

1045 words - 5 pages

The court case of Bennelong.
Why were Bennelong and Colby captured?
Bennelong and Colby were captured because the European Australians wanted to see how the Indigenous Australians lived. They also wanted to capture Bennelong & Colby, so that they could have them with them and they were hoping that by the presence of Bennelong & Colby living with them the rest of the native population warm up towards them, and not be so aggressive or hostile. They were not intending to kill them as the natives thought; they just wanted to bring peace between the native people and the European settlers.

If he had done otherwise, there would probably of been some punishment for not obeying the governors orders, it was not up to him in anyway whatsoever, it was so they could be able to use the Bennelong as one of theirs, be able to bring peace between the native aboriginals and the European settles. What he had done was not right, but it was not wrong, because it was not up to him. Bradley thought they were doing something that would help relationships between the Europeans and the Aboriginals.

Examine and comment on the picture of Bennelong.
I think they changed his look; they have made him look like a European by the way they have dressed him and made him look proper. I think it is wrong to change his look, his look was who he was but they took that away from him, just like that took his family and friends away I think this whole thing was absolutely terrible. He may look proper, but I really don’t think that it is going to make the other aboriginals follow on because of his fancy clothing. The way they have taken the photo and captured him makes him look very posh, they have changed his image and what he eats and who he is, but this might be because they want the other aboriginals to follow the European way.
Overall verdict:
Today I am here to tell you about the case that involves Lieutenant Bradley. I will prove that lieutenant Bradley is innocent. This case involves the incident that happened many years ago, involving the ‘kidnapping’ of Bennelong. I will prove to you today that it was not Lieutenant Bradley that ordered this; it was in fact Governor Phillip.
This following paragraph will state my reasons of why in fact Lieutenant Bradley was innocent it will state the reasons and...
