Teaching children the truth about Indigenous history

Posted in Feed Play Love.

When Bruce Pascoe was in primary school, Indigenous history was far from the truth.

After the success of his book Dark Emu, he decided to release a version for children. Young Dark Emu, a Truer History has the same stories – observations from original colonists – of an advanced civilisation that cultivated and cared for the land they lived upon.

Bruce talks about how a truer representation of our past will make for a better future, and why children are the perfect vessels to take in the knowledge.
