Resources for Guide Leaders:

  • Share our Pride, an online resource suitable for older Girl Guides and adults interested in raising their awareness about the lives of First Nations people. You’ll get a taste of traditional cultures and learn about shared history.
  • Koori Curriculum, which is designed to give educators guidance and support to include Aboriginal perspectives in the curriculum.
  • The Maggolee website has information about each of the 79 Victorian local government areas; details on policy and programs; protocols and cultural awareness; traditional owner groups; and local Aboriginal organisations, Aboriginal languages, key local contacts, news, and events.
  • Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS), which aims to create and deliver professional development for teachers and educators so that teachers and
    educators can confidently: educate their students about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, and teach Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students with confidence.
  • Read the Reconciliation Action Plan good practice guide on demonstrating inclusive and respectful language.
  • Connecting with the Aboriginal History of the Yarra, a resource developed by Yarra City Council in consultation with the local Wurundjeri people.
  • Wurundjeri Tribe Council, a website with more information about the Traditional Owners of Greater Melbourne.
  • Information about the Uluru Statement from the Heart. This year (26 May 2020) marks three years since Professor Megan Davis read the Uluru Statement from the Heart to the Australian people.
  • More resources to help commemorate the Uluru Statement from the Heart.

Earn the Reconciliation Badge:

This badge is part of Girl Guides Victoria’s commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander recognition and reconciliation. In demonstration of this commitment, the State Commissioner has approved the Reconciliation Badge, our first Indigenous badge, as a ‘sash badge.’ This badge can be worn on the back of your sash as a special event badge. This is a significant and rare decision, and provides an important visible connection between the Girl Guides Victoria and Indigenous communities.

The Reconciliation Badge provides an opportunity for Girl Guides, individually or with their Guide Unit, to display their commitment through their actions by participating in a cultural activity or event. Girl Guides must participate in an appropriate cultural activity or event to earn and wear this badge.
