Archie Roach AM’s internationally recognised iconic song, Took The Children Away, has been beautifully translated into a picture book with accompanying resources for primary schools. A collection of interviews with Stolen Generations Survivors were created with accompanying resources for secondary school learning on key education themes; Cultural Identity, Stolen Generations, Talking Our Truths & Healing Through Story and Arts.
Singing Our Futures Music Project music was created to allow space for our young peoples and emerging artists to listen, learn and heal through story and music. With Uncle Archie and established musicians mentoring emerging artists and producing a tribute to our Elders, ‘Spiritual Heart’,
Culture is Life acknowledges Uncle Archie for his generosity, passion and dedication to our First Peoples and Stolen Generations survivors, and for all the healing work he has done sharing his song stories and spirit with the world.
We deeply honour the strength, knowledge and wisdom of our Elders who shared their stories in these videos and guided the content to be best delivered and learnt from in schools; Aunty Lorraine Peeters, Aunty Eva Jo Edwards, Uncle Jack Charles, Aunty Iris Bysouth & Uncle Syd Jackson.
