To mark the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination and National Harmony Day (March 21),  this campaign invites every Australian to reject racism and deepen their connections with the long and impressive story of the first Australians.

  • What do you know about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and culture?
  • What can Australians do to understand Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and history better?
  • Why should Australian’s be proud of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and history?
  • What is an everyday act that you can do to build understanding with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, culture and the broader community?

Imagine if – just by valuing and celebrating the inspiring achievements and practices of the world’s oldest living cultures and calling out racism whenever it occurs – we could literally save lives.

Belinda Duarte, CEO, Culture is Life, Wotjobaluk.

“I come from the sacred lands of Lake Mungo, my grandmother's country, which actually gives us the incredible story that our old people have been here for at least 60,000 years. And the evidence of those oral stories is very important, not only to us Aboriginal people but to the world and of course the education sector.” - Aunty Vicki Clarke (Mutti Mutti/Wemba Wemba)

We're announcing the winner of our Valentine's Day competition! 🖤

We asked our followers to give us their go to self-care tip and we loved this one: "My key tip to ensure good self care is consistently being aware of what I need, and ensuring that I connect with land and mob regularly."

We couldn't agree more! Self-awareness or self-regulation, and connecting to Country and community is crucial for our mob's wellbeing ❤️‍🩹

Thanks again to our friends at @kinya_lerrk for the beautiful wellness hamper, which will be in the mail soon for our winner to enjoy 💌

Today marks the anniversary of the National Apology to the Stolen Generations, who suffered continuing trauma due to a history of government policies of forced child removal of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.

‘[The Stolen Generations are] as much a part of Australia’s history as Captain Cook and Burke and Wills. We still need to own the whole history of this country and be honest and courageous. It’s the only way we’re going to move on. That’s why we created the resources for schools and students, so they don’t have to find out about the stolen generations as adults.’ - Uncle Archie Roach (Gunditjmara (Kirrae Whurrong/Djab Wurrung) and Bundjalung)
