BONUS: Marlee Silva – Aboriginal History Spanning 80,000 Years
Isn’t it your lucky day? Because this week we’re dropping not one, but TWO episodes with Speaker, Author, Aboriginal Rights Advocate and Happow Ambassador, Marlee Silva! When it comes to Aboriginal culture and history, Marlee is like a well-resourced library. She’s incredibly knowledgeable. So we decided to take full advantage of this and ask Marlee a stack of questions, because to be totally honest, there was a lot we didn’t know about Indigenous culture and history. So we wanted to educate ourselves and others who too would love to learn more! Marlee was so gracious and respectful of Gianna’s questions, and her answers and perspective were eye-opening and insightful. Gianna and Marlee spoke openly about some BIG issues that still exist today. Fun fact. Did you know Aboriginal history spans 80,000 years! This is just one of the many facts Marlee and Gianna spoke about. Here’s some other stuff they covered too: Aboriginal Countries in Australia and Torres Strait Islands Skin names in central Australia Dreamtime The meaning of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags Why Uluru means so much to Aboriginal people The significance of the Southern Cross The 2005 Cronulla riots The link between racism and fear How far we've come as a society and our hopes for the future Hope you get a lot out of this chat just like we did. …So, for the second time this week, let’s once again Power Up Life!
