Summary
This program was designed to give information about the Western Division of the NSW Department of Education's Aboriginal Education Consultative Group (AECG). The program features footage of members of the group discussing the role of AECG, described by Chairman, Bob Morgan, as to give regional representation on Aboriginal education issues. Morgan also claimed that education is the most effective tool in the redevelopment of Aboriginal society, as the realisation of justice and equity requires a fair education system. Topics discussed at the AECG meeting included ways to get Aborigines more involved in the education process, and the introduction of better Aboriginal studies programs to the curriculum to promote a better understanding of Aboriginal culture for all students. The program looked at some examples of schools which are showing initiative with their Aboriginal studies curriculum. In Brewarrina, Evelyn Crawford, a local Aboriginal woman, was leading a bark painting workshop which took students into the bush to teach them Aboriginal language, art and culture; encouraging a greater cultural identity in Aboriginal children and an awareness of Aboriginal culture to non-Indigenous students. Another example included a story telling program at Menindee Central School with local Aboriginal woman, Beryl Philp, who took classes of children into the bush and told stories which explained the significance of the land and bush to Aboriginal people. Another Aboriginal studies program shown came from Walgett, where elderly members of the Aboriginal community talked to school children about Aboriginal Heritage in the Walgett area; the importance of the river, food and medicine, fishing and hunting goanna and traditional utensils and artifacts
