Who are the Real Invaders? As I look into the picture it shows three or so savage looking aboriginals hiding within the bushes holding spears in their hand about to attack some innocent white men. The white men look as though one of the wheels on the wagon has broken up in the hillside so they have stop by the side of the track to change it. This picture is biased towards the white men because in the picture the aboriginals are shown sneaking up on them for no reason purely to kill them. With long spears in there hands the artist is displayed the aboriginals as savage people that do not care, are sneaking and are the people who are invading the white people land.
This picture has betrayed the aboriginals as savages and the white men as the victims but really it was the white men who invaded their land, killed thousands of them and made it hard for the aboriginals to have a say in anything. I believe the picture is false because if the aboriginals had attacked the new comers it would have purely been because they were scared (at first they thought they were ghost) and wanted their land back, also they had totally different rules and regulations eg. Some of the aboriginals would enter the invaders (white men) land and take sheep because one of their rules was what’s yours is mine and what’s mines yours. This picture is similar to the Atlanta movie because as the story progressed the aboriginals were getting fed up with the white men and wanted them to leave. In the movie 2 white men were killed which makes the aboriginals look crazy but when you find out why and what their rules are it doesn’t seem so bad. When the white man broke one of their rules he given a small shield and was told to try and defend himself against the aboriginals spears, he was killed.

The artist picture and the movie are very similar because they both betray the white man as innocent people and the aboriginals as barbaric savages.
