Description

‘Australia is alive with the long history of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, our cultures and our stories. My generation of Aboriginal people want young Australians to be taught more about our history and culture than we were. I have met very few Australians who learned anything in school about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Many have told me that if they were taught anything at all, it was incorrect and often racist. In fact, many Australians think that the only ‘real’ Aboriginal people are those who live in the deserts.


This idea is based on two centuries of racist views that were wrong and should have no place in modern Australia.’ – Professor Marcia Langton
