Watch this episode, the ABC’s You Can’t Ask That: Indigenous, which is a chance to hear the answers to all manner of silly, obvious, naive questions put by members of the public to a group of indigenous Australians. Listen to the passion with which they speak and the uniquely personal perspectives offered so generously. Understanding ‘The Secret River’ is as much about the story of the our present as it is about the past.
Watch the first episode of ‘First Australians‘ and note the different stories, values and attitudes that emerge about the following people:
