Scott's curator insight, April 10, 2015 10:06 PM

As the 1967 Referendum is all about Indigenous Australians, it is important that the teaching provided on this topic is seen from both sides, Indigenous and non-indigenous Australians.

This website although created and written by a non-indigenous man. But through collaboration with indigenous peoples, has such cultural sensitivity and a clear respect and love for Indigenous culture.
It is important however as teachers to evaluate the validity of the information being presented about indigenous Australians. When analysing this resource against the Resource Guide for Aboriginal Studies and Torres Strait Islander Studies, five key evaluation criteria need to be established (Queensland Studies Authority, 2007, p. 2).

Authenticity: The resources as a website was established in 1999, Although some of the information presented is from a later time the way it is viewed is to reveal the bias towards indigenous people such information holds. When it comes to the referendum it reveals what the non-indigenous perspective was on the even and then reveals what the event actually meant to indigenous Australians.

Balanced nature of the presentation: The page about
the referendum shows a good balance of both male and female perspectives on the event. As well as being in collaboration with Indigenous people.  

Aboriginal/ Torres Strait Islander Participation: The Author who is non-indigenous references and acknowledges Indigenous collaboration within his information presented, he also has links to information, books and stories written by Indigenous people throughout the website.

Accuracy and Support: According to the creator the resource is highly visited and praised by multiple Indigenous communities that can be viewed on the page. All the information provided is linked to further support documents and source information usually written by Indigenous individuals. 

Exclusion of a secret or sacred nature: From what can be seen there does not seem to be any information of a secret or sacred cultural nature being wrongly displayed through the resource. 
 

The site challenges misconception about the referendum and provides a rich variety of information in different forms such as text, tables, youtube videos ect. This makes it a very engaging resources for the teaching of this Key event in the development of Australian democracy from multiple perspectives.

Is it braver to go to war and serve as a soldier, or to resist the war effort at home? During WWI, conscientious objectors in Britain were imprisoned for their beliefs about the futility and savagery of the Great War.
