From film to literature to theatre to design, Indigenous
people have had a set of archetypes placed upon their
identity, many of which have held fast to become practically
unshakeable. Often these depictions are generated by
non-Indigenous practitioners, sometimes from within our
own communities. Panellists will each present their top
three stereotypes and look at how we affirm and define our
depictions across mediums. Speakers Dillon Kombumerri,
Candace Wilde and Rachael Maza-Long have much to bring
to the debate.

we have survived. nOw what?
In a deeply entrenched political landscape, there has been
a front of resistance and advocacy in place since invasion.
This has come in many forms, from activism to addressing
the United Nations. So what has become of the tried and
true methods of resistance? Have they become passé to the
younger generations who are perceived to be less inclined
to take to the streets? This forum invites those who have
laid markers on the survival landscape to talk about their
approaches, whilst inviting new thinkers to contribute.
Speakers include: Gary Foley, Oni the Haitian Sensation,
Uncle Noel Blair and Michelle Evans.

approaches that can be made toward a respectful way
forward? Speakers are: Sam Watson, Melvin and Rosa John,
