In episode 282, I discuss my journey of learning and discovery about our first nations people – and how as a non-indigenous Australian I can respectfully recognise and celebrate their cultures. I share my personal experiences, conversations I’ve had and useful resources I have found as I try to improve my understanding and empathy for the perspectives of our First Nations People. As Australia Day rolls around again and conversations about this topic fire up, these links and tools may help provide alternative perspectives, they may help you feel more confident to walk with our First Nations people in a movement of the Australian people for a better future.
