Aboriginal Victoria has recently launched the Deadly Questions campaign, which has been developed as part of the Government’s commitment to self-determination and treaty. The campaign was designed following consultation with the Aboriginal Treaty Working Group and the Victorian Treaty Advancement Commission.
Deadly Questions aims to build understanding between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people. It provides a space for Aboriginal Victorians to discuss history and how it affects their lives today, as well as to share the strength and vibrancy of their cultures. It also provides an opportunity for non-Aboriginal Victorians to acquire a deeper understanding of Aboriginal cultures, history, and the issues facing Aboriginal communities.
Anyone can submit a question to the Deadly Questions website. These questions will be vetted before being answered and published on the Deadly Questions website.
Some of the questions and answers we found already found published on the website, include:
- Why don’t we see many Aboriginal people around the City?
- Is it true Aboriginal people invented footy?
- What does a Treaty mean to you?
