DHHS Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Cultural Competence Course is a very interesting course, quite taxing emotionally because of the awful history to them in the past to be treated a non humans. I am filled with awe for how some Aboriginal fought for their rights and suffered for it but eventually was/were acknowledged for the effort. First Nation people are all over Australia. There are many groups of them with different languages and cultural differences. it is important to make a point to learn the different group to avoid offence. This is a course worth for everyone to do it and to gain knowledge of the cultural differences.
