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.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are strong, rich and diverse. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Identity is central to this priority and is intrinsically linked to living, learning Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, deep knowledge traditions and holistic world view.
A conceptual framework based on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples’ unique sense of Identity has been developed as a structural tool for the embedding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures within the Australian curriculum. This sense of Identity is approached through the interconnected aspects of Country/Place, People and Culture. Embracing these elements enhances all areas of the curriculum.
The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander priority provides opportunities for all learners to deepen their knowledge of Australia by engaging with the world’s oldest continuous living cultures. This knowledge and understanding will enrich their ability to participate positively in the ongoing development of Australia.
