National Talkblack 220822

We had:

Michael Bell, Australian War Memorial Indigenous Liaison Officer, talking about Australian War Memorial recognises Indigenous Vietnam veterans. New research from the Australian War Memorial has identified more than 250 Indigenous men and women who served for Australia during the Vietnam War.

Gary Lang, Gary Lang N.T Dance Company Larrakia choreographer, talking about how his Waŋa dance collaboration explores ancient and modern beliefs about death. The performance of Waŋa — which means spirit — starts behind a thin veil, with a glimpse of the “in-between world” and an ancient Yolŋu funeral ceremony.
