Stolen Generation and Mabo Decision: Impact on Indigenous Australians_2

P a g e | 2
Introduction
There are many major historical events for Aboriginal people and communities in
Australia that affected their position in the country. Some of these events or policies have
negative goals whereas others have taken positive steps to make sure health, wellbeing and
rights of Indigenous people are promoted (Gee, Dudgeon, Schultz, Hart & Kelly, 2014). In
this report, two major events from the Australian history timeline are selected to evaluate
their impact on Aboriginal people. The first event is the ‘stolen generation’ which is a pre-
1967 event that is a major part of the Australia history timeline. The second event which is
selected is post-1967 that is the ‘Mabo case’. The goals of each of these events will be
analysed, and how Indigenous Australian are positioned and their relationship with
Australian society will be discussed. This report will evaluate similarities and differences
between the two events and how knowledge about these events is reproduced will be
analysed. Lastly, a personal reflection will be given on these events based on my
understanding.
