dc.description.abstract This article attempts to historicise the whiteness produced within the claim by James Cook to possess Australia. That claim is examined through Morton- Robinson s idea of white possessive logic and two paintings of the event to question the making historical that confirms white privilege through the making normal of such events. Cook as an historical figure becomes secured from readings of him as violent or desirous while continuing to produce national imaginings that naturally exclude Indigenous sovereignty and which continue to depend upon ways of looking to control Indigenous populations. en_US
