Taking the Next Steps: Episode 2

The students and staff of Sydney TAFE Media welcome you to Part 2 in a series of podcasts commemorating Sorry Day and National Reconciliation Week 2017.

Today Dallas Wellington, a Jerinja man from the Wandandian Nation and Head Teacher of Foundation Studies at Eora College, speaks with Certificate 4 Radio Broadcasting students Talecia Vescio and Miles Davies.

In this podcast Dallas explains that it’s taken more than 200 years for non-Aboriginal Australians to realise the value of the culture and stories of the land’s first people – culture and stories Aboriginal people have always wanted to share.

You can learn more about Aboriginal culture at Eora College, which offers short courses in Aboriginal Cultural Education. Eora also offers Aboriginal languages (Dharawal and Banjalung), and courses in art and music.

We would like to offer our respect and appreciation to the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, and also thank our brothers and sisters at Eora College for so generously offering us their wisdom and knowledge and for telling us their stories, many of which are so painful to relate.

Learn more about Reconciliation Week and how you can take the next steps towards equality, equity and unity at the Reconciliation Australia website.
