Colonisation And It’s Aftermath
This episode of Dja Dja Wurrung Radio is a compilation of three episodes. The first is an interview with Historian Marguritte Stephens, discussing historical records that reveal tiny glimpses of what life was like as Central Victoria was being colonised. Then Uncle Rick and Allie discuss Sorry Day and what it means. Finally a recording of Aunty Julie McHale’s speech at International Women’s Day with reflection on Reconciliation and what women’s business involves.
This is part of a 2015-16 series called Dja Dja Wurrung Radio made by Uncle Rick Nelson and Alison Hanly. This series was made possible by a community grant from the Mount Alexander Shire Council and was created for MAINfm to be aired as short 5-10 minute segments. For ease of listening we have edited them together and have linked episodes by theme rather than representing the order they were originally broadcast in.
The series was shortlisted for the 2016 Reconciliation Victoria Community Hart Awards.
On its way soon!
