Yuin Byalla In Burramatta “Truth Talking In Parramatta”
Time Out says
This Reconciliation Week panel will discuss connections to land and the natural world
This panel discussion brings together First Nations experts and community leaders to discuss the important connections First Nations people have with the land. Speakers include award-winning writer Bruce Pascoe (Dark Emu), Indigenous astronomer Karlie Noon, and Australia’s first Indigenous youth-led climate network, Seed, to Riverside Theatres in Parramatta.
As humans, we have important relations with our land and water, our knowledge of climate and seasonal change is associated with life-cycles of plants and animals. The sky signals when plants bloom, fruits flower and marks the birth cycles of animals. This panel will ask if this knowledge and way of life is at risk with climate change, and if so, how should Aboriginal communities respond to this change?
The talk will take place on Thursday June 3 at 6pm as part of National Reconciliation Week and responds to the 2021 themes ‘More Than A Word. Reconciliation Takes Action’ and ‘Heal Country!’ in the lead up to NAIDOC Week.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for people aged 18 and under. The event is recommended for people over 15. Reserve your spot here.
