These supporting factors are equal in importance, and the form in which they are conferred is of no significance. After the article’s heading, the first materials presented in the article are pictures of Juukan Gorge cave sites before and after mining. The first experts presented in the article include Rio Tinto’s chief executive Jean-Sebastian Jacque, Chris Salisbury, chief executive of an iron core, and Simon Niven, group executive of corporate relations (BBC, 2020).

Regarding Australian history, the article includes information such as the history of the Aboriginals living in the sites. Moreover, the article indicates that the destroyed Aboriginal sites are considered the home of Australia’s earliest human remains head home. When reading the article, readers can notice that the caves are considered the first home for Australia’s indigenous. On the other hand, the reader can notice that the destruction of the caves is an act of non-indigenous seeking profits. The article also includes an indigenous perspective. The author uses this perspective to support the main message: the caves should not be destroyed since they are home to Indigenous (BBC, 2020). According to the author, Australians living in the destroyed sites are profoundly affected and disheartened by the rock shelters’ dissolution. They are lamenting the loss of connection to their ancestors and land. Based on the information, Indigenous readers will claim that it is wrong for the sites to be destroyed. On the other hand, non-indigenous readers will interpret the information about the destruction of the sites as an act of development.

‘It’s just denial’: Bruce Pascoe, Labor condemn PM’s ‘no slavery in Australia’ claim, is an article that centers on the claims of Bruce Pascoe indicating that the Prime Minister’s claims that there was no slavery in Australia are faulty. Information in this article is also ordered in a simple and listing design. By implementing this approach, information is randomly presented in a series of supporting facts and details. The first material presented in the article is Bruce Pascoe’s picture and his perspective that the Prime Minister was wrong, claiming no slavery in Australia. The first experts presented in the article include Bruce Pascoe, an author, historian, and Prime Minister Scott Morrison (Koslowiski, 2020). The ordering position utilized in this article allows readers to comprehend the issues related to slavery in Australia.
Regarding Australian history, the article incorporates information such what was the basis of slavery in ancient Australia. For instance, according to the article, Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders unlawfully toiled for no salaries until 1992. When reading the article, readers notice that since early colonization up to the 20th era, Indigenous Australians regularly operated on farms for rates instead of payments. The article incorporates an indigenous perspective. For instance, the article indicates that slavery can be abolished if individuals trace back to gain insight into Australia’s history (Koslowiski, 2020). Based on the information presented, both non-Indigenous and Indigenous readers will interpret this information that they are not aware of the ancient connection of the hurdles they encounter today.
Based on the first article’s information, there are less than a handful of distinguished Aboriginals sites in Australia. Moreover, according to the article, Aboriginals have always occupied the caves since the colonization (BBC, 2020). Thus, it is the role of the government to ensure that these homes and lands are protected. The caves have often been a part of the Australian culture and home to various aboriginals. Destroying the sites was a devastating blow to the Indigenous. On the other hand, the second article’s information indicates that the Australian government is implementing measures to abolish slavery in Australia. According to the article, Indigenous worked for ratios rather than wages, an aspect that Bruce Pascoe is condemning (Koslowiski, 2020). According to my understanding and perspective about Australia’s cultural history, slavery has existed since colonization, mostly affecting the Aboriginals even in these modern times.
