Faulty memories and cultural institutions

1 Comment

 

In what ways are memory institutions compromised? How do we make sure that galleries, libraries, archives and museums are truly inclusive in the stories they tell?

Nathan 'Mudyi' Sentance is a Wiradjuri man who grew up on Darkinjung country in New South Wales. He works to ensure that First Nations stories are being told and controlled by First Nations people.

In this episode, we talk about how he came to this role, why our historical records are faulty, and what it means to pursue the truth about ourselves.

So glad to have stumbled across Nathan in the online world. I feel really heartened & excited learning more about your work. Having lived through decades where First Nations understandings & explanations were discounted with no risk of being corrected, to hear you take that perspective that First Nations knowledge & stories be curated & maintained by First Nations people just makes my heart sing. I wish you well. Thank you Fatima.
