A genuine relationship

This clip tells the story of a cross-cultural relationship between Lieutenant Dawes and Aboriginal woman, Patyegarang in the early years of the settlement at Sydney Cove. Lieutenant Dawes established an observatory just under where the harbour bridge is now located, and Patyegarang would visit him there, and teach him Darug.
