The Original Aussies

Posted by Cezanne.Perez on Thursday April 23, 2015

On April 20th, Nyack College student Janette James put together a production titled "The Original Aussies - A Look Into the Indigenous History of Australia." The program featured a brief history of "The Stolen Generations," a dark period of injustice towards the indigenous population of Australia. The personal story of Janette was extremely moving as she made a public announcement of forgiveness on behalf of both her grandmother and the indigenous population. The program also included art, photos, maps, and flags, to provide students with a better understanding of Australia. Terry Ann Salmon, Evan Peet, and Yessica Lopez also stepped in to lend a hand in putting on this production. Thanks, Janette, for providing us with this eye-opening event!
