Storyboard Text

  • Captain James Cook and his hearty crew begin to sail away to Australia in order to begin a new society designed just like Europe.
  • We're off to Australia!
  • Meanwhile, in Australia, the Aborigines were having their daily tribal rituals. They had no idea what was coming...
  • The Aborigines' life was about to change...drastically.
  • Land 'Hoy!
  • During the European takeover, Aborigines were taken to learning institutions or, if they didn't comply with verbal rules, killed. 
  • I'm takin' you to the institution!
  • Europeans would often drag the indigenous people a long way just to teach them how to act like a "common human being."
  • We're here!
  • NO! I want my family!
  • Today, only 1.5 percent of Australia is Aborigine: the first human beings to step foot on the land. In addition, the indigenous people who do remember their heritage don't know what tribe or group they belong to. This is why the Aborgines are called a "lost generation."
  • What's an indigenous person? Wait a second. I don't even know who I am anymore! AHH!
