Unveiling Queensland's first dedicated memorial for First Nations heroes

Queensland teachers, educators and historians are invited to join Aunty Lorraine Hatton OAM for an online professional development session exploring the history and celebrating the recent unveiling of the new memorial statue at Anzac Square.

Memorials honouring those who have served Australia in the armed forces can be found in large cities and small towns throughout the nation. Aunty Lorraine is chair of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Dedicated Memorial Queensland (ATSIDMQ), responsible for Queensland's first dedicated memorial statue for First Nations heroes. The statue honours all Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders who have served in conflicts in which Australia has been involved.

State Library of Queensland acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their continuing connection to land and as custodians of stories for millennia. We are inspired by this tradition in our work to share and preserve Queensland's memory for future generations.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this presentation may contain images, voices or names of deceased persons in photographs, film, audio recordings or printed material.
