Friday 29 May from 12:30pm to 1:30pm

Modern history characterised Aboriginal Australians as ‘hunter-gatherers’. It’s a label that’s been used to justify dispossession for more than 200 years.

Professor Bruce Pascoe’s award-winning book Dark Emu shatters this colonial narrative.

Using early explorers' diaries as sources, Pascoe reveals Aboriginal Australia's long and sophisticated human occupation.

During Reconciliation Week, join Bruce Pascoe and Verity Firth in discussion on food, housing, agriculture and sustainability, and what modern Australia could learn from the rich knowledge of the oldest continuing living culture on earth.

Bruce Pascoe is a Bunurong, Tasmanian and Yuin man, and an award-winning Australian writer and anthologist. He is also a Professor at the UTS Jumbunna Institute for Indigenous Education & Research.
