Had a yarn with a deadly young Murri yesterday. He’s worked in schools & is currently working in criminal justice. He was reminiscing about his time in schools in Logan. Too many of the schools & teachers thought that implementing Indigenous perspectives was to – add in some traditional sports on sports day or find a dance group for their “cultural day”.
But its more than that.
Indigenous perspectives should be – everyDAY not specialDAY. Its ORDINARY not extraORDINARY.
Don’t agree? Have a yarn & maybe we can lend a hand.
