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.
