Lobbying, ethnicity and marginal voices; The Australian South Sea Islanders call for recognition
Quanchi, Max (1998) Lobbying, ethnicity and marginal voices; The Australian South Sea Islanders call for recognition. The History Teacher, 36(1), pp. 31-41.
In 1997, "Australian South Sea Islanders", a set of curriculum materials for primary and secondary schools was distributed in an attempt to convince schools that the study of Australia's South Sea Islander community was important and that liong overdue recognition of their role in Australian history and society could be achieved if teachers adopted these materials in the classroom. This article offers an overview of the "call for recognition" campaign and an analysis of the context in which it became one of the most successful lobbying campaigns on record.
