May 19, 2017

Speakers: Lewis Yerloburka O'Brien | Veronica Perrurle Dobson | Fiona Walsh | Zaachariaha Fielding

Host: Miriam Corowa


40,000 years of Indigenous Australians have maintained a sustainable relationship with every corner of Australia’s diverse environment via a deep listening tradition that preserves language, heritage and culture. In this panel respected Indigenous Elders, an Ethno-Ecologist and a young Indigenous rising star who sings in his country’s language will talk about this knowledge and how the future of Australian environmental conservation is linked to preserving and sustaining our indigenous cultures, heritage and languages.
