How can we claim a connection to the prideful aspects of our past without also claiming a connection to the shameful? Black Armband View Advocates: Keith Windschuttle, John Howard, John Hirst

History is influenced by those who create it

Indigenous History is told through oral language

History should be seen as a narrative

History of the non Indigenous and Indigenous people is a shared history.

There is hope for reconciliation and eventual assimilation.

This representation of history is one of optimism and patriotism, inspiring a “rightful pride” in our past...... White Blindfold View A political debate

Came about because of a need to address the representation of Indigenous Australians in our history books
