This week we’re speaking about indigenous people in different countries and cultures. We hear thoughts from Julia Bussab Fonseca about the sinister side of development which harms Brazil’s indigenous groups, Ronald Kim about Australia Day’s controversies and the different regional perspectives and Benji Flacks about his positive memories celebrating Maori culture and multiculturalism in New Zealand.
“How do we want to be integrated with our natural environment, what is the relationship that we want to have with our natural environment, can we build an integrated relationship?’ – Julia Bussab Fonseca on the questions she was challenged to answer when working with indigenous people in Brazil.
