AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Susan is an Aboriginal girl with red curly hair and fair skin. She shows her Aboriginal story books, clap sticks and boomerangs to the class at school for show and tell. The other children don't believe she is Aboriginal until they are invited to her birthday party. Back at school after the party there is a common resolve to explore identity and harmony.

The story is told as a short video and is available on YouTube here.
