How Can 'Non Indigenous' Australians Engage in Indigenous Justice? It’s Pretty Black and White
Last edited 8th July 2015

My year four teacher sold me a lie, and yours probably did too… It wasn’t that she was a bad person; after all, she was just passing on to me what had been passed on to her. To a room full of impressionable young minds, her words hit my ears with unsettling confidence. ‘Australia was discovered by Captain Cook, and on 26th January 1788 Australia was established as a nation.’ There was, of course, a problem with this story. At best, it was a thin story, a partisan and discriminatory representation of our history, at worst it was intentional deception. A lie. And a lie that changed everything.

He's on the waiting list for a bone marrow transplant. He's looking for support on social media and his campaign has gotten some attention. But he probably wasn't expecting to get support from Pope Francis, during his flight from Rome to Latin America.
