MUTINY TO UNITY


Uniting the island states Debate continues even to this day - who was right in the Bounty saga? Was it Bligh for his approach to discipline or was it Christian for his stance against oppression? However, no matter the readers’


view, the fact remains that, today, the tale of the Mutiny on the Bounty in the 18th century has brought our two islands together in a positive way in the 21st century. As the Chief Minister of Norfolk Island, Hon. David Buffett, MLA, a Pitcairn descendant,


said: “Our intertwined history of conflict on the high seas, determined and hardened attitudes, one family against another. “This persisted for generations.


More recent enlightened thinking has brought realization that old enmities


need to be put behind us, our conflicts converted to strands of friendships and our future governance be based upon greater conversation, co-operation and cohesion. Thus a cultural agreement, in a new age, has been created and applauded.”
