Why teach all Australian kids about the 1967 referendum?

Teaching Australian children about the 1967 referendum provides a great opportunity to:

  • learn about a significant turning point in post-colonial history
  • learn how ordinary citizens can rally to change legislation
  • counter myths that exist about what the referendum achieved
  • understand the inequality that Aboriginal people faced as British subjects and later as non-citizens after Federation
  • witness a time in history when the majority of the population supported an Aboriginal issue.

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.
