Indigenous Australians lived here long before British and other immigrants arrived. We have a sad history where Indigenous folk were not recognised, valued. Which is why there is not as many Indigenous Australia living here now. We still see the clash of western society on Indigenous communities today.
How can you play apart of valuing Indigenous Australians today? As Christians we have a special role to play. Especially as Indigenous folk see spiritual causes as the base of physical problems.
Here are opportunities to financially support mission projects valuing Indigenous Australians through providing training, equipment and care.
For example we have a number of translations in English but did you know there is only one complete Bible in an Indigenous language? We need to value the other languages that are spoken!
