Looking back, moving forward: recognising Indigenous knowledges

To set the scene for this year’s speaker series we will look at the global movement recognising Indigenous knowledges.

Fifteen years since the National Apology to the Stolen Generations a referendum is now being planned on an Indigenous Voice to Parliament.

But just what are Indigenous knowledges? And how are they, or could they be, used to inform our modern world?

Professor Tom Calma is hosting a discussion on recognising Indigenous knowledges.

Academy FellowProfessor Tom Calma AO FAA FASSA, an Aboriginal elder from the Kungarakan tribal group and a member of the Iwaidja tribal group, will host a discussion with other experts on this topic.

He was appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia in 2012 and named ACT Australian of the Year in 2013 and ACT Senior Australian of the Year in 2023 for his work as a human rights and social justice advocate. Professor Calma was elected a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science in 2022.

Professor Calma has long been a champion for the improvement and advancement of Indigenous peoples’ health, justice, education, and employment status.
