In a broad introductory history this unit examines the invasion and colonisation of First Nations Australians and the role of non-Indigenous Australians in this process. This history is recognised as an important part of Australia's national history. The unit begins by an investigation into the power of the coloniser to define what is silenced in national history and the national identity and the impact of the foundational historiography in shaping views of the ‘settlement of Australia’. The unit provides key knowledge on terra nullius; First Nations resistance to colonisation; racism; Stolen Generations; and the formative and ongoing development of First Nations political resistance and advocacy, including the 1967 Referendum and the Uluru Statement from the Heart. The unit enables a deep critical and ethical understanding of the impact of the past and its endurances into the present while fostering capacities to consider a more equitable national future enabling citizens and future professionals .
