Description

The Building of our Country's Wealth - Understanding the True History of Australia's Aboriginal People

The film, Servant or Slave by filmmaker Steven McGregor, gives an emotional insight into the history and legacy of the domestic servitude enforced upon Aboriginal girls in Australia. Many thousands of girls were stolen as young children from their parents and placed in institutions, to be trained as servants who could be assimilated into mainstream Australian society. You will hear the stories of five women, who bring to light their heart-breaking experiences, yet celebrate their fortitude in pursuing justice for the crimes committed against them. Important facts highlighted throughout the film will pave the way for a facilitated discussion and self-initiated research to further understanding.
