Summary
"In 1832 British Quakers James Backhouse and George Washington Walker travelled 'under concern' to the antipodean colonies on a mission sponsored by the Religious Society of Friends. This article examines Backhouse and Walker's mission to witness the 'testimony' of Looerryminer and other Aboriginal women who had lived with sealers in the Bass Strait Islands. It argues that this investigative journey is best comprehended in the context of the long tradition of Quaker transimperial travel 'under concern' and particularly their abolitionist witnessing undertaken from the late eighteenth century and its associated texts with their distinctive form, language and repertoire. Urging that we read 'along the grain' of the archive in line with Ann Stoler, the article explores the travel and curious translation of humanitarian abolitionist sentiment, text, and action across and between colonies of settlement, and the various 'species of slavery' that were imagined, constructed and examined by Quaker humanitarians in this Age of Reform." [Author's abstract]; discusses the historical and contemporary political context of Aboriginal identity related to relationships between sealers and Aboriginal women on Bass Strait Islands; agency of Tasmanian Aboriginal women in relationships with sealers;
