Series: Family Movie Discussion Guide Bible Study
The real-life story of three Aborigine girls who walk 1,200 miles to return to their home after they are forcibly taken away.
Rabbit-Proof Fence tells the incredible true story of three half-caste Aborigine girls who are taken from their home in Jigalong, Western Australia, to the Moore River Native Settlement. There they are to be indoctrinated in white etiquette so they can be integrated into the dominant culture as domestic workers. But the girls want to go home, so they escape and travel 1,200 miles on foot, with nothing but the clothes on their backs and the rabbit-proof fence that bisects Australia to lead them in the right direction. They must endure harsh conditions and risk recapture at every step.
This study guide will help you and your family discuss some major themes of Rabbit-Proof Fence. What is bigotry, and why does it exist? What is it like to be a stranger in a strange land? How can we help strangers? How does God watch over people?
