Stereotypes are dangerous as they can lead to RACISM and PREDJUDICE
Look carefully at the images
on each of the coins below.
1. What do they have in common?
2. What old stereotype about Aboriginal Australians do you carry around in your wallet?
Look carefully at the images below and list as many of the stereotypes of Indigenous Australians today and where they come from
The media is the main supplier of these simplified views and a distributor of stereotypes.
The media forms and reinforces Aboriginal stereotypes, by concentrating on ONE group of Aboriginal people, who are largely a minority.
How could these stereotypes effect you in:
Level of education
Achievement of goals
Contribution to the community
Attitude towards white people
Brainstorm some ideas and write a paragraph explaining how stereotypes might affect Aboriginal people
These are just some of the statistics that show the inequality that exists between Indigenous and non Indigenous Australians
In groups make some notes about how this might affect your life if these were the stats for your people.
Why isn’t more attention placed on positive role models in the Aboriginal community?
