IMAGINE

You are living your traditional ways on your Land.

A strange people come to your land.

They drive you away from your land.

They injure and kill many of your people.

They steal your resources.

They herd you and put you on reserves.

They fence you in.

They steal your children.

 

 

THE EFFECT IS "NOW"

IMAGINE

Your children that survive, being cut off from their natural traditional ways of Life -

finding food, kinship relationships, bartering, ceremony, rituals, traditional learning, creative arts, cultural growth

Their children cut off from these...

and so on ........

 

TRANS-GENERATIONAL TRAUMA  means feeling -

Lost                  Angry

Alone                Resentful

Isolated            Bitter

Confused 

 

THE CYCLE: 

annoyed to upset to angry to bitter to Hateful

 

STOP THE CYCLE

THE TIME IS "NOW"

IF NOT YOU, WHO ?

TRANS-GENERATIONAL TRAUMA IS REAL

IMAGINE

The first Nations People ( Australia's indigenous people )

  • living where they want to live
  • having Services they need provided by the Government
  • having meaningful employment opportunities where they live
  • having the support they need
  • expressing their culture & arts

LIVING IN DIGNITY

 

RESTORE ABORIGINAL DIGNITY

REVIVE ABORIGINAL CULTURE

RELEASE THE "SHADOWS" OF IGNORANCE & APATHY

 

THE TIME IS ALWAYS "NOW"

IF NOT YOU, WHO ??

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.
