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.

"Rottnest Island is where they would take Aboriginal men from all over Western Australia as prisoners. So it's the largest site for Aboriginal deaths in custody in Australia."

#TheAustralianWars is currently airing on @nitv_au. Ep 3 takes us to Wadjemup (Rottnest Island) with #Noongar Elder, Uncle Len Collard. A significant site and place in history that Culture Is Life's 2022 Fullaship Program was able to learn about and pay respects to. Have you watched the series?
