To help educate kids about First Nations culture pre-invasion, we've put together a special pack with Bruce Pascoe's Young Dark Emu.
Also included: a Large AIATSIS Aboriginal Land Map, a set of four Sea of Hands pins, and some Stickers.
About the book
Using the accounts of early European explorers, colonists and farmers, Bruce Pascoe compellingly argues for a reconsideration of the hunter-gatherer label for pre-colonial Aboriginal Australians. He allows the reader to see Australia as it was before Europeans arrived — a land of cultivated farming areas, productive fisheries, permanent homes, and an understanding of the environment and its natural resources that supported thriving villages across the continent. Young Dark Emu — A Truer History asks young readers to consider a different version of Australia’s history pre-European colonisation.
