We had:

Minister for Fire and Emergency Services and Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships Craig Crawford MP discussing the new national agreement on Closing the Gap and how it will see State and Territory Governments commit to 16 targets that include reducing the rate of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander incarceration.

Wayne Brennan, Archaeologist and rock art specialist with Gamilaroi ancestry telling us about how the summer bushfires exposed Indigenous artefacts protected by bushland and how the race is on to save them from neglect.
