OUR VISION – 65,000 YEARS PROJECT
Crackerjack Education is proud to bring you the 65,000 Years Project
We are an independent social enterprise company that includes a team of people who are passionate about presenting Indigenous people’s ancient knowledge and history to the world within a culturally safe and positive framework. This framework stems from a key awareness of a group of Australian Indigenous people — that a way needed to be found for others to learn and share their culture in order for it to survive. The framework also demonstrates how to deliver Indigenous programs that are completely and positively supported, and includes all of the resources necessary to encourage non-Indigenous people to deliver and share knowledge with confidence and joy in any location.
The 65,000 Years Project has a simple but exciting working philosophy. It focuses on the humanity we all share, and on respecting difference and valuing diversity. It seeks to break down the walls that keep the current negative cycles running in regards to the interactions between non-Indigenous and Indigenous people, and to enable a positive cycle to develop in its place.
Our framework shows how non-Indigenous people can benefit incredibly when they connect, value and take personal pride in the ancient cultures of their country. It also highlights why it is critical for Indigenous people to support these individuals in a positive manner when they do so.
Through a unique balance of listening and learning from Indigenous and non-Indigenous perspectives and world views, we have developed strategies to focus on the ancient Indigenous knowledge systems as the first step to learning. Only by knowing and learning the historical and sacred ancient knowledge systems, can people today truly understand the issues, loss and traumas that have been carried with each generation and continue to be handed down to our future children.
The 65,000 Years Project focuses on positively supporting the workforce of Australia through training and professional development. By including ancient Australian knowledge systems in all training and education areas, a deep connection will occur between non-Indigenous people and the ancient history of their own country and community.
