Why teach all Australian kids about notable Aboriginal woman, Oodgeroo Noonuccal?

  • challenge stereotypes about Aboriginal people
  • learn from the life of a great role model
  • appreciate that art forms like poetry can depict social histories
  • observe how resilience and determination can overcome obstacles in life
  • investigate past issues of democracy and citizenship for Aboriginal people
  • see an earlier era of Australian history from a personal perspective.

A great addition to your collection of First Nations resources
