Nation Builders

The Nation Builder of the week is Eddie Mabo.

Eddie Mabo stood up for the rights of his people, (the Aboriginals)  so they could live a normal life, and claim back their land/country because the British had taken it from them.

 He is important to Australia because he has changed the rights for the Aboriginals so that now we are a fair country that acknowledges the land we live on was rightfully and originally their’s.
