Mr Bruce Pascoe
Moderated by renowned journalist Kerry O'Brien, the third instalment of A better future for all will welcome celebrated Indigenous author, Bruce Pascoe.
Together they will explore the way Bruce's critically acclaimed book Dark Emu: Black Seeds: Agriculture or Accident? challenges conventional thinking about the First Australians as hunter gatherers.
In this book Bruce draws on the historical record to recreate a much more sophisticated picture of an ancient civilisation in Australia before the Europeans arrived. This is at odds with colonial and post-colonial stereotypes and points to ways that Indigenous knowledge can provide lessons that can be applied today, despite the backlash which has attempted to discredit him.
