The History of Aboriginal Sydney (HoAS) site is the output of a five year project (2009-2013) supported by the Australian Research Council and the Department of History at the University of Sydney. It was first published published by the University of Sydney between 2010 and 2013, and was hosted by ATSIDA at University of Technology Sydney until 2017. The initial web architect was Dr Suzana Sukovic at the University of Technology Sydney, via the Digital Resources section of the University of Technology Sydney's Library. HOAS is now hosted by the Digital Humanities Research Group at Western Sydney University. HoAS is intended as a means to repatriate histories to the first peoples of Sydney. The site is also intended as an information resource for use in schools and higher education institutuions by Aboriginal families and organisations, and by non-Indigenous people of sydney who wish to learn more about the lives, histories and achievements of Australia's first peoples. To browse through a collection, please touch-tap / click on a tree branch to enter the site.
