I am a secondary school teacher & passionate about Indigenous Education. I believe that by educating students in Indigenous Perspectives, we can eliminate the cultural bias & appreciate the amazing contribution to society by the First Nations People.
This website blossomed from my Bastow Create Project, after interviewing both teachers and students it was evident there was a desperate need for teachers to have Indigenous resources available in one place and to provide a mapped out curriculum with the relevant Indigenous links.
As a result, I have made and personally fund this website in my own time, for all to use for free. I only ask that you acknowledge myself (for any non classroom use) and the DET & VCAA, (for any reference to the Victorian Curriculum), who I would like to thank for permitting me use. I hope you enjoy the site and incorporate the resources into your teachings.
Please support these social enterprises that benefit the Indigenous community;
1.Clothing the Gaps fashion brand)
2. Indigenous Literacy Foundation https://www.indigenousliteracyfoundation.org.au/volunteer
This website is dedicated to all Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people & to my late father who instilled in me to always fight for equality for all.
Many Thanks :)
