Why teach all Australian kids about Aboriginal identity?

Teaching Australian children about Aboriginal identity provides a great opportunity to:

  • reinforce the fact that Aboriginality is not determined by skin colour
  • consider concepts of identity in a multicultural nation
  • understand that cultural difference has been a basis for racism in Australia
  • learn that a broader understanding of diversity can facilitate acceptance
  • appreciate how Aboriginal People view their identity and changes that have occurred since colonisation.

A great addition to your collection of First Nations resources

The content in this poster addresses the cross-curricular priority of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Culture. It could also be used to guide conversations with your students in conjunction with NAIDOC Week celebrations.
