The aboriginal people, now known as Aboriginals or Indigenous Australians, were the first people to live in Australia. They are believed to have arrived on the continent 50,000 years ago. Aborigines were not forced to live on reserves and missions. They had always lived in small groups, hunting kangaroos and emus, fishing, and collecting fruit. Some Aborigines were nomadic people who moved around to get food and did not form permanent settlements. There were at least 250 or more different Aboriginal cultures and languages and hundreds of different dialects.
When Did The Australian Government Stop Stealing Children From Aboriginal Families?
The Australian government was engaged in what we call ”the stolen generations”, which means that the Australian government were effectively stealing aboriginal children from their parents, for their ”health”. Between 1910 and 1970 the Australian government was kidnapping aboriginal children en masse. Australian people thought that they could make the aboriginal people ”more civilized” by taking their children and educating them.
It’s similar to what has happened in Australia since the 2020 pandemic, how the Australian government has stolen the freedoms of all Australians, stolen their wealth, stolen their property, and in many cases, killed them. All for ”their health” haha, it’s literally the same thing but by doing it to the entire countries population. This pandemic was in some case a good thing, because it woke everyone up to just how evil (totalitarian) the Australian government has always been.
Stolen Generations in Australia
In 1788, the first British settlers arrived in Australia. They were not interested in the Aboriginal way of life. The British wanted to control the aboriginals land and use it for their own purposes. They did not see the Aborigines as equals, but as people who could be used and then forgotten.
In 1869, the British government passed a law called the “Aboriginal Protection Act.” This law said that the Aboriginal people could not own land, could not vote, and could not have any say in how things were done. This law also said that the Australian government could send Aboriginal children to live on reserves, which are large areas of land set aside for Aboriginal people.
The Australian government began to take Aboriginal children away from their families in the early 1900s. This was called the “stolen generation.” The government said that it was doing this to “protect” the Aboriginal children. But in reality, the government was taking the children away to force them to live on reserves and learn how to be British. The government also wanted to “breed out” the Aboriginal race and to make the children turn their back on their parents and families.
Australian Government Stole Aboriginal Children
In 1926, the government began removing Aboriginal children without telling their parents. The children were taken to live in government-run homes far from their families, and they were made to forget about where they came from. In some government homes, Aboriginal children were made to dress up in animal skins and paint themselves with mud. They were also taught that the white settlers were “superior” to them, but they should be patient until the white people died out.
It was not until approximately 1967 that the Australian government finally acknowledged that the stolen generation had existed. In 1997, the Australian government made a formal apology to the Aboriginal people for what had been done to them.
Today, many Aboriginal people are trying to learn about their culture and history. There are now many schools and programs that teach Aboriginal children about their language, culture, and traditions. Many Aboriginal people are getting involved in politics to try to have more say in how the Australian government is run.
It is not known exactly, just how many Aboriginal children were taken away from their families during the stolen generation. Some people’s estimates say that as many as 100,000 children or more were affected. The Australian government has never given a full explanation of why it took these children away from their families.
In January 2012, Prime Minister Rudd gave a formal apology for the stolen generation. He said that the policy was “wrong” and that it had been “a great injustice.” This apology was an important step for all Australians to move forward and put the past behind them.
The people of Australia have been sinning for over 200 years. Australia should be ashamed of itself, and it should apologize to aboriginal Australians. Australia has not only stolen their land, but they have also stolen their children and tried to wipe out their race.
