In this paper, I examine the ways in which migrant heritage projects risk reproducing colonial formations unless they adopt decolonising strategies. I illustrate this through my critique of the Migrant Heritage in Australia kit. I then discuss the manner in which migrant communities reproduce colonial relations of power in the context of their everyday practices when they fail to consult with local Aboriginal communities over the cultural significance of sites used by migrants for investment, recreation and so on. I conclude by calling for the development of a protocol that will instantiate a decolonising migrant historiography.
