Non-Indigenous Australians need to educate themselves
The recent Black Lives Matter protests in Australia have highlighted the pressing and continued need for non-Indigenous Australians to take responsibility for reconciliation, writes Marnie Graham and colleagues in a new article in The Conversation.
The article is published on June 12 and written by Marnie Graham, Post-doctoral Research Fellow, Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University, and University of Johannesburg, together with Sandie Suchet-Pearson and Uncle Lexodious Dadd, Macquarie University, Australia.
They write: “At the moment, Australians reading the news or watching the protests might be asking: how can we contribute to this change? Through our research and teaching, we have learned that spending time with Indigenous people, learning about culture and history and connecting to Country, is an important first step. And one accessible way to do this is through an Indigenous tour.”
