Let’s celebrate this – that First Nations people are the world’s longest continuous culture and people. Recent dating of the earliest known archaeological sites on the Australian continent – using thermo-luminescence and other modern dating techniques – have pushed back the date for Aboriginal presence in Australia to at least 40,000 years. Some of the evidence points to dates over 60,000 years old.

But this would go against every white, western, christian principle the LNP stand for. And we have to consider our new ‘Envoy’ who’s been appointed to shape the future of this longest continuous culture. Tony said – no one was here before Cook arrived- so let’s just white wash history shall we guys? He wants to ban the schools from teaching their language and have all the Aboriginal kids ‘think in English’ … good one Tones.
