Rose Barrowcliffe

Rose Barrowcliffe is a Butchulla researcher who is currently undertaking a Higher Degree by Research (HDR) at the University of the Sunshine Coast. Rose’s research explores the historical relationship between the archive and Indigenous peoples and is grounded on the K’gari Research Archive, which is held at the USC campus.

The research aims to highlight the stories of the Butchulla people which exist in the K’gari Archive as well as identify ways in which previously unrecorded Butchulla histories could be included in the Archive, preserving their vital role in the history of the island and Wide Bay.
