Change starts with education. We need the true history of Australia and its First Nations people being taught in Aussie schools. Not only to keep the culture alive but provide better understanding, recognition, relationships, and respect to Australia’s First Nations people.
We urge the Australian government to make Aboriginal History compulsory as a part of the school curriculum. The time is now to change our education system in order to teach all Australian kids about the culture of our world's oldest civilization. Not teaching our kids Australia's true history is no longer acceptable - our kids deserve to be taught the real history of this country.
I am a proud Yorta Yorta and Gunditjmara man. I am privileged to travel and work with First Nations people in communities across Australia. We need more education around Aboriginal history and cultures, and what my people have been through. Educating our country on our culture gives First Nations people value and the respect we deserve and will help us to come together.
We urge the Australian government to make Aboriginal History compulsory as a part of the school curriculum. The time is now!!
I am presenting this petition at parliament house in November and would love for as many people as possible to support this petition. Let's see if we can get this over 300,000 by the day I present this.
Please pass this on to your friends and family. Thank you.
