Contains an excellent overview of the history and formation of the Australian Public Service as well as historic and current labour issues specific to Indigenous people which have wide ranging ramifications for all Australians. Highly recommend this for professionals who want to create a more just and equitable Australia, through workplace practices. Should be mandatory for any professional who wants to work in an Indigenous organisation - private sector, public sector, academia, or not for profit.
Our two large maps were delivered quickly and safely rolled in a postal tube. The map is excellent quality and will be a welcome resource at our school.
As a person who only found out his heritage in the last 10 years, finding resources that speak to it are rare. This is a great book as it not only builds language but goes to explaining how to implement it.
Fantastic map, delivered fast. I got the fold-up version for easy transporting. Clear, indexed, great resource thanks!
Poster came exactly as described and in perfect condition. Packaged wrapped securely so no damages.
We purchased 5 of these for our Grade 4 classrooms and I have since emailed throughout the entire school to get more ordered in. Thank you for providing such an affordable resource that has sparked incredible discussion in our rooms.
Excellent quality poster, even at the largest size.
I have ordered a couple of the maps from AITSIS and the quality is fantastic and the service is great. Prompt and easy!
Great quality and delivery was timely. Highly recommend sourcing from AIATSIS. Couldn't be happier
Love it... great to see the name of the land we’re on.
A1 is easy to read for old blokes!
Important message beautifully told
A beautifully created map that I was thrilled to see that my best friends had also purchased the same map for their family trip around Australia. Every child should have a copy of this.
I purchased for my Grandchildren, they are Indigenous, their father was (past away) an Aboriginal from Darwin, NT, a Larrakayah man. The map is now displayed for the Grandchildren. We lived in Darwin for approx. 27 yrs.
This is a well-made, informative film dealing with events from the mid-1960s, at the height of the Cold War. Some of the government / project officials are sympathetic to the Aboriginal culture, making honest attempts to get the people, once they have been discovered to be living in a dangerous area, to safety. It's obvious also that some of those connected to the project have taken the opportunity to take advantage of the found people, especially the women and children. It's one more example of the usual lack of respect shown to Indigenous people. I'm glad I purchased and watched the film -- I had no idea that the rocket tests had even taken place. As the old saying goes, "History is written by the victors" -- not necessarily "victors" in the "war" sense, but in the sense of being oppressors. This is sadly the case the world over.
Again, a well-made and important film. Highly recommended.
