Professor Mary Kalantzis from RMIT University presents a paper exposing the black holes that still exist in Australia's history.

Professor Mary Kalantzis
Dean of the Faculty of Education,
Language and Community Services
RMIT University, Australia 

"At that moment (1901) we said we were going to be a fair and equal society and egalitarianism was at the core of it - but it was only for some people not for others - only for those who were going to be white and British."

Mary Kalantzis talks about the history of the past one hundred years of Australia, the history that isn't taught and consequently is hidden. It compels to agree, we do not know our own history and the profound difference that constitutes to the reality of today.

"It's the same modern ideology (as Nazi Germany) about people who could survive, people who were superior, and people who were inferior. In 1901 we decided that Aboriginal people weren't human, because we didn't count them as humans, and what we decided we needed to do after that is to segregate them in similar kind of ways.


"Alfred Deakin said, "We do not want any admixture of race - the motivation for Federation was no admixture of race - one people one nation one culture". That's what he said.

"Why don't we face up to that."


"What we've done in the past fifty years is an extraordinary story - we've done it together - aborigines, none aborigines, immigrants - women, women weren't even included in 1901. It's a terrific story. But 1901 is not the moment that will give us anything to be proud of - it's what we've done since despite 1901."
