Proudly hosted by our Elders on Campus, the Office of Indigenous Strategy and Engagement invites all students and staff to join esteemed Elders and Senior Cultural Leaders as they share community insights on the Voice to Parliament referendum.
The ‘Around the Campfire: Voice to Parliament Elders and Senior Leaders Community Panel’ will be held this Thursday 21 September. It will seek to elevate and amplify First Nations community voices by emphasising key aspects of discussion within their own communities through respectful and reciprocal dialogue.
The panel includes Senior Elder-on-Campus, Dr Uncle Richard ‘Balang/Japaljarri’ Fejo, together with Mr Murphy Dhayirra Yunupingu, Yolŋu Cultural Leader and Cultural Educator, Aunty Miliwanga Sandy Wurrben, Elder and Cultural Educator and artist, activist and Flinders Lecturer, Aunty Pat Ansell Dodds. This event offers a unique opportunity to hear the perspectives and personal observations of these esteemed community figures on the discussions leading up to the referendum.
We invite you to join us either, in-person in Darwin, on Larrakia Country, where there will be afternoon tea and networking session following the event, or online, to engage in our community-informed exposition around the Voice to Parliament Referendum.
