The First Jack-O-Lanterns

The First Jack-O-Lanterns | History and Society | Scoop.it

Kinship Module

Aboriginal Australians were multicultural long before European settlers came to Australia. Traditionally, there were more than 500 different Aboriginal Nations across Australia with different languages, social structures and modes of behaviour, but also with many common denominators – specifically religious ties and Kinship systems.

The Kinship online learning module aims to give you a deeper understanding of the richly complex Kinship system by learning about the components of Moiety, Totem, Skin Names, language and traditional affiliations and individual identity.

UNHCR Refugee Figures

Chloé Génion's insight:

69 884 people have sought asylum in Australia by boat in 38.5 years. That equals 5 refugees per day. 
In comparison, Lebanon received 1 million refugees in 12 months from Syria. And there are 51.2 million refugees/displaced people now - more than post WW2.
