On Saturday 24th September, the museum hosted our Gana (Hear, think, understand) event with guest speaker Djarra Delaney.
Djarra is a Quandamooka man and an Indigenous researcher and PhD candidate at the School of Geography, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Melbourne.
His research listens to the stories and experiences of climate change from Indigenous communities and asks about aspirations for responding to climate change. He proposes alternatives to current understandings of ‘climate change adaptation’ that centres Indigenous ways of knowing and being with Country.
Djarra’s yarn was enjoyed by all and we thank him for sharing his knowledge with us. His presentation will be uploaded to our website www.stradbrokemuseum.com.au soon. We would also like to thank Cr Paul Bishop who attended and filmed the event, which will be uploaded also. Thank you to everyone who came along and supported this event. Museum Gana (Hear, think, understand) is a series of guest speakers talking about interesting topical events mostly related to the history and people of Minjerribah/Terrangerri. Keep your eyes out for our next one!
