Lifestyle photographer Grace Chon recently turned the camera on her 10-month-old baby Jasper and their 7-year-old rescue dog Zoey, putting them side-by-side in the some of the most adorable portraits ever.
Hey there, and thank-you! It is absolutely fine if you, as a non-Indigenous Australian wears the Aboriginal flag! It’s showing support and recognition for Aboriginal peoples :) Cultural appropriation would be playing the yidaki/yirdaki (didgeridoo) without an elder or nation’s permission.
Have to say that I disagree, the flag came out of the aboriginal black power movement and the creation of the tent embassy, it was intended as a image of aboriginal resistance, I don’t feel that non-aboriginal ppl should be wearing it
I’m thinking more, wearing it on a t-shirt or jumper or having a little sticker of it in the back window of the car. My mum is white and she wears it on clothing and has a smaller sticker of it on her car.. I think it’s place appropriate and obviously shouldn’t be donned like the Australian flag is on Australia Day as capes/weird wrap around dresses
Yeah, it really depends on the context, and if the non-aboriginal person is respectful or if they have aboriginal family/friends that are comfortable with it, like i personally generally will not wear the flag, because i’m scared shitless of white ppls reactions.
Yah I gotta say I feel rly uncomfortable seeing non-Indigenous people wearing Aboriginal flags on their bodies or as a sticker or whatever, like those “no room for racism” stickers shit me. It’s like an “I’m not a racist” badge. Maybe this is just out of my personal experience of most of those people trying to rep those symbols and images being completely obnoxious faux-allies.
