Black Day, Sun Rises, Blood Runs

Hear Taungurung woman, Isobel Morphy- Walsh, senior programs officer First Peoples, recount the stories of violence that occurred in her homelands in the early years of European settlement.

A recent addition to the First Peoples exhibition, Call to Fight section Black Day, Sun Rises, Blood Runs explores the legacy of homeland violence on present generations. Isobel will talk about the making of the film and her involvement with it.

Following the viewing of the film, talk and discussion teachers will have the opportunity to explore the First Peoples exhibition using one of the year level booklet trails.

This session provides a perfect opportunity for teachers to explore how they might address this shameful aspect of Australia’s history and open up conversations in the classroom about the nature and causes of violent conflict between First Peoples and European settlers.

Essential professional learning for all teachers of Australian History, Geography and society.
