But didn't the Stolen Generation who were educated in religious missions speak rather well, especially the women. I have heard so many of these older and usually mixed blood Aboriginal women speak over the years, and they are so eloquent and well spoken, with excellent diction. Sadly they are now dying out.
I am really not saying anything about what I think is a shameful history between whites and Aborigines in Australia, but the contrast between how the mission educated Aborigines spoke and many of those now speak, tells loudly of the importance of education.
