This is an icon showing a young girl learning the English words such as “white”. She is surrounded by aura of found objects. Part of an ongoing series since 1990 depicting members of the Stolen Generations of First Nations children in Australia. This image is part of a series of icons showing the many chores performed by the stolen generation after they were taken away from their culture and families. Unpaid child slave labour was common within state institutions and in missions right up until the late 1970’s.
