Module 9
Indigenous Peoples of Australia

With the Brink Expedition reaching home soil, the Australian route will extend around Australia from the Top End, the 'Red Centre' and onto the southern states. As he cycles around Australia, Brink Adventures expedition member Kendon Glass will be spending time with the indigenous communities along the route.

The main focus of this module is to provide students with an opportunity to aquire knowledge about Aboriginal stories and the interconnected nature of the relationship between indigenous Australians and their environment. As students engage with the various learning experiences in the module, students will reflect on their own relationship with the environment, ultimately presenting their responses through art and story.

Focus Questions include:
  • In what ways have aspects of Australian indigenous culture been represented in the media?
  • What do the stories and customs of Australia's indigenous people reveal about their culture?
