Why teach all Australian kids about the Aboriginal warrior, Pemulwuy?
Teaching Australian children about Pemulwuy provides a great opportunity to:
- understand that “first” contact happened many times over with many different language groups
- consider the impact of colonial contact on thousands of years of Aboriginal culture
- understand why conflict arose despite Governor Phillip’s aim to treat the local people well
- see the links between early contact and issues that Aboriginal people experience to this day.
A great addition to your collection of First Nations resources
