Please join IAH WA on June 1st from 5 pm at the Central Park Conference Centre for a special screening of the award-winning documentary, Undermined-Tales from the Kimberley.
Fellowship – 5 pm to 5.30 pm
Film screening – 5.30 pm to 7 pm.
UNDERMINED investigates the politics of an area now branded “the future economic powerhouse of Australia,” and what this means for our First People and their unique cultural landscapes. As pressure from industry exposes the limits of Indigenous land rights, what will remain of over 200 remote Aboriginal communities?
We follow young leader Albert Wiggan, veteran cattleman Kevin Oscar and Senior Elder June Davis through David-and-Goliath battles to preserve their homelands, asking the question: for whose benefit is this development?
The film aims to shine a light on the complex issues facing Aboriginal communities and to promote a better understanding of connection to Country.
Come and be a part of the change and challenge current thinking around land ownership, land use, Native Title, Indigenous consultation and corporate/government accountability to so that we can include Aboriginal enterprises, cultural solutions and alternative industries around conservation and land management going forward.
