History, human rights and Indigenous Australians
Indigenous Australians have been connected to this country since the beginning of the Dreaming. 250 years ago, Australia was colonised and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have been fighting for their rights ever since.
Want to learn more about defining moments of Australia’s social justice history?
At this extra-special UTS SOUL Award event, you’ll join the National Museum’s Margo Neale, Head of the Centre for Indigenous Knowledges and Senior Indigenous Curator, and Robert Bunzli, Coordinator Digital Programs, on their personalised tour broadcast live to UTS from the Gallery of First Australians.
Ask your questions while exploring with them Indigenous expressions of culture and a journey from colonisation, dispossession, frontier conflict and the Stolen Generations, to the evolution of the Indigenous civil rights movement – from the 1967 referendum, to Land Rights, Mabo and Wik, to the Apology – to now.
