On todays National Talkblack via NIRS – NIRS – National Indigenous Radio Service we had:

Graeme McCrabb Local fisherman and community member. Rural New South Wales communities are bracing for another ecological disaster, despite efforts to save local fish populations. More than a million fish died in December 2018 and January this year along the Darling River at Menindee, which was once home to 60 different fish species.

Ngarra Murray – National Manager for Oxfam’s First Peoples’ Program. Government policies that empower local Aboriginal communities and build on traditional knowledge and culture to deliver services generally produce better results and should become the policy norm in Australia, according to a landmark report released call In Good Hands by Oxfam Australia.

Johnny Murison – Chairperson of the Western Yalanji Corporation. Digital technology has been used to capture a “priceless”, centuries-old Aboriginal tree carving in far north Queensland. Last year the tree fell to the ground and started to decay. It was a race against time to capture three-dimensional renderings of the tree, more commonly used to capture dinosaur fossils. This could change the way Indigenous artefacts are preserved for future generations.
