The Cootamundra Domestic Training Home for Aboriginal Girls (1912-1969) was run as a training institution for First Nations girls who were forcibly removed from their families under the Aborigines Protection Act (1909-1969).
The Coota Girls Aboriginal Corporation was founded in 2013 by a courageous group of Coota Girls Survivors, former residents of the Cootamundra Domestic Training Home for Aboriginal Girls (1912-1969).
Our Board of Directors is made up of Coota Girls Survivors and descendants.
Coota Girls Aboriginal Corporation Office and Keeping Place is located at Central Railway Station in Sydney on Gadigal Country. The location holds significance for Coota Girls Survivors and many Stolen Generations Survivors who passed through Platform 1 on their way to the homes after being forcibly removed from family and community.
