This week, we reflected on what Australia Day means to us. We started by watching a series of video clips about what others thought about the meaning of Australia Day. You can watch them here.

How did the women's suffrage movement use the rise of journalism to its advantage? TJ Boisseau introduces photographs that show how suffragists staged protests with the press in mind.

We are still here and strong. Jandamarra was an Indigenous hero...whose white ‘bosses’ called him Pigeon. He knew in his heart that the country was inscribed by powerful spirits in the contours of its landscape.The Wandjinas created the land and sky. They also created the spirits that swim in the water soaks and sacred places. Pigeon couldn't see them, but these spirits visited his dreams. Jandamarra's story is an epic and tragic tale which Mark Greenwood has re-told in a simple and yet majestic style, accompanied by Terry Denton’s vibrantly graphic, illustrative interpretation. This is a creative re-imagining of the life of an extraordinary man and of a seminal time in Australia’s history.The reverberations of the events known as the ‘frontier wars’ are still being felt more than one hundred years later and will continue to have an impact on our national psyche.
Jandamarra and his people are still here, and they are still strong.
