National Talkblack100622

We had:

Associate Professor Sally Kate May, Archaeology and Museum Studies University of Adelaide talking about Arnhem Land art ‘detectives’ helping discover who painted these priceless works. More than a century after anthropologist Sir Baldwin Spencer collected bark paintings from Arnhem Land, research is underway to identify the artists who created the work. A group of artists and a cultural adviser from Arnhem Land have flown south to see the paintings in person for the first time.

Amit Padhiar, NSW Registrar talking about Our Kids Count visit the northern rivers region. The NSW Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages (the Registry) is hitting the road to promote the registration of Indigenous births with the Our Kids Count campaign. Padhiar said Our Kids Count would visit the Northern Rivers region to provide on the ground support to help Aboriginal parents register their child’s birth.
