Indigenous Republic of Australia Citizenship Test
TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE
"Indigenous Australia is fast moving towards an Independent republic and we would like to create a citizenship test (just like the current govt’s citizenship test) to see if people have knowledge, and respect in order to have a true connection to our land. This Quiz was put together by the team at Blackfulla Revolution: www.facebook.com/ourcountryourchoice .
This test will also give you an idea of how much you really know about the land you call (or would like to call) home.
