@cochise I’ve been watching the conversation on this topic progress and some replies on the topic are a little strange.
I am a proud Wakka Wakka man and an Aboriginal business owner.
We focus on increasing Aboriginal participation across all industries among many other things.
Recently we have helped a few young fellas get jobs in the construction industry in drafting and construction.
With the support of employers we can help these fellas build a future.
By providing awareness of the past it helps overcome barriers.
- high incarceration rates
- high mortality rates
- lower life expectancy
- loss of culture and language
- a large number of kids in care
- higher unemployment rates
- lower education outcomes
And many more
Aboriginal people are the oldest living culture on earth which nearly came to an end a little over two hundred years ago so much has changed since then.
Aboriginal people have been here for up to 80,000 years potentially 120,000 years
It’s amazing so many people don’t know about Aboriginal history and when they do it changes their perceptions of Aboriginal people and their culture and they appreciate it.
If an Aboriginal person can get a job that can change their lives their families and a whole community.
