Reconciliation week is about people learning how to trust indigenous people and this video shows us why.
Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander didn’t count as part of the population of Australia.
The girl in the video did a social experiment of people getting to hug her while she was blindfolded. She did this because only 13% of people think there is trust with Indigenous and non indigenous people.
Indigenous people were not allowed to go to the same school, shops and hospitals as non indigenous people.
I learnt from the video that a lot of people think Aboriginals are not trustworthy. I also learnt what reconciliation week is because I had never heard of it.
Why weren’t Aborginal people allowed to go to the same shops, schools and hospitals? That would mean some of my friends wouldn’t have been able to go to my school.
