Finding Eliza: Colonial Power and Storytelling?

I listened to one of the latest 'The Garret' podcasts where
Larissa Behrendt, a Eualeyai and Kamillaroi woman and author of 'Finding Eliza: Colonial Power and Storytelling' gives her take on the legend of Eliza Fraser, the woman who Fraser Island off the Queensland coastline was named after -

Born on April Fool's Day?!
We're not in Kansas anymore?-)
Dingo - The Trickster
Catherine Elizabeth "Kate"; née Middleton
What's in a Name? That Which We Call a Rose by Any Other Name Would ... Be a Meme?
Tim Buckley, born February 14 (Valentine's Day), 1947
Murdered on Valentine's Day?!

A stuffed dingo awaits the royal couple at Kingfisher Bay on Fraser Island
I guess most people like a good story, real or not ... or a bit of WTF both?-)
The Trickster Awaits?
And I find it rather synchromystic that not only was Larissa born on April 1st, but according to Wikipedia Larissa,
"was raised in the Sutherland Shire in the South of Sydney."
But I guess that's another story?-)
In 2012, Behrendt published Indigenous Australia For Dummies.
Larissa Behrendt, Malcolm Fraser (Foreword)
I'm gonna have to read some of Larissa's books I think, staring with the Eliza Fraser book.
