Transcript of stolen generation history
What? what happened?
A term used to describe those children of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent who were removed from their families by the Australian Federal and State government agencies and church missions, under acts of their respective parliaments.The removals occurred in the period between approximately 1869 and 1969, although in some places children were still being taken in the 1970s. Children of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descents. they were forcefully removed from their parents.the government people used agreement written in language that was too hard for them to understanda nd was made to sign it. The documents of the removal of children will be destroyed to remove the evidence.
It was between 1869 to 1969 but children was still being taken in 1970s. Because the dominant culture thought they could take native children from their homes and families and they would turn white, It didn't work in Australia or America, but it sure wreaked cultural havoc for the ones who lived through it.
