[CHAT] Australia Day and Indigenous Australia

Around 50-60,000 years ago Indigenous people arrived in Australia. There are lots of amazing things to celebrate about Indigenous culture, however there are also issues and topics of debate, particularly as we approach Australia Day.

Not yet, and I probably won't end up doing much. Australia Day is a bit of a non-event in my family.

Possibly working! And possibly keeping it low key out of respect for Australia's Indigenous people. Heart

I'll be on the spirit of Tasmania heading home from my holiday.

I don't, I tend to do my usual weekend kind of thing on Australia Day - might listen to the hottest 100 countdown as I do bits and pieces but i don't have many plans. I think my housemates are having people over so I might quickly say hello.
