New resource coming soon: Aboriginal Change Makers
Parliament of Victoria has had the privilege of partnering with Worawa Aboriginal College to produce a new educational resource, under the guidance of Dr Lois Peeler AM, widely known as Aunty Lois, a recognised Elder in the Aboriginal community. To be launched later next month, Aboriginal Change Makers will be a teaching resource for Victorian schools that explores the rich history, culture, identity and struggle of eminent Victorian Aboriginal leaders who were instrumental in bringing about change for their people. With stories, images and a suite of learning activities, the free digital resource will explore Aboriginal community decision-making, leadership and the development of the Aboriginal Rights Movement.
The rich collection of stories included in this resource honour just some of the Change Makers who, through their commitment and determination, made a difference in Aboriginal society in Victoria that rippled across the country.
The video from Worawa Aboriginal College, shows the grounds of the college, which were once part of Coranderrk Reserve; a place of great significance to many of the Change Makers' stories.
