Pride in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia

As we start our RAP journey toward growing healing and culturally respectful relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people we wanted to share this free online resource with you. Share Our Pride:  http://shareourpride.reconciliation.org.au

It walks you through topics addressing who the First Australians are, what their culture is, shared history, beyond the myths, and how we can all have respectful relationships. We highly recommend that you explore this resource. No matter how much you think you know, we're confidnent you'll learn something new.

While you are working your way through the website, have a think about these questions:

·         What might I do differently and what might the ACM do differently to build better relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people?

·         What might I do differently and what might the ACM do differently to have and show respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people?

·          What might I do differently and what might the ACM do differently to create opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to help close the life expectancy gap and build a stronger Australia?

Over the next few weeks we will be sharing more information and resources with you so that you will be able to give us your views on what should be in the ACM RAP in February/March.
