A night by the fire with Bob Weatherall

Uncle Bob Weatherall has many decades of being involved in repatriation around Queensland and Australia, culminating in the repatriation of his own tribal ancestors from the Queensland Museum in September 2013.

This is a part of the Remains and repatriation talk series. Diverse conversations about ancestral remains and repatriation as we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the discovery of Mungo Man.
The 42,000 year old remains of Mungo Man and Mungo Lady are some of the oldest remains of modern humans found outside of Africa. At the time their discoveries revealed the intricate and complex culture of Aboriginal people, not yet known to the Australian public.

Gain insight into the personal accounts of discovery, exploration, repatriation and community healing from industry professionals, Elders and community members. Each fortnight hear differing perspectives from each speaker in the lead up to our larger discussion forum where we explore the links to the past and how they impact us today.

Date: Tuesday 21 October 2014
Speaker: Bob Weatherall
Venue: Talking Circle, kuril dhagun, Level 1

Serving Country Session 4

On Friday 26th September 2014, State Library of Queensland hosted The Serving Country Forum,part of the Q ANZAC 100: Memories for a New Generation (a State Library of Queensland initiative proudly supported by the Queensland Government.)

When war was declared in 1914, many Indigenous men were the first to try to enlist, although it wasn’t until April 1917 that Indigenous enlistment was permitted. These young men fought valiantly for their country, they stood side by side with their fellow Australians in the hope of bringing equality to their communities. Until recently these stories and this history was virtually unknown.
