Stolen Generations

Testimonial site at StolenGenerationsTestimonials

The “Stolen Generations” is the first portal and is extremely important for health professionals, including Medical Students and Junior Doctors.

Understanding the history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander people, the current situation and issues in health, education, law, housing and employment is important in ending third world conditions in a first world nation.

Every Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander family and community has been affected and continues to be affected by the policies of the past and present.

We pay respect to all who have been impacted and continue to be impacted by the policies of the past and present and work towards a productive and inclusive society for all.

‘The “Stolen Generations” refers to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who were forcibly removed from their families as children by past Australian Federal, State and Territory government agencies, and church missions, from the late 1800s to the 1970s.

These removals were carried out under acts of their respective parliaments, and the children removed were sent either to institutions or adopted by non-Indigenous families.’
