‘digging up my place of birth … digging up our Mother Earth … now she has been cut … now she has bled … red…’

– Robbie Bundle, 2014 Universal Ark Album

‘to follow the Old Way’ panel will explore the inextricable connectivity between Aboriginal belonging in Country and Ancestral obligation and responsibility in the stewardship of Country, comprising moornong meerreeng (sky country), meerteeyt meerreeng (sea country) ba meerreeng meerreeng (earth country).

The Panel contributors will speak to the resonance of interconnected Being, seeking healing for all Kin. It is an appeal to humanity and a gentle reminder that Indigenous patience has ‘worn thin’ and that listening and learning from Aboriginal Ancestral, cultural and ecological knowledges is imperative in this time of climate and ecological crisis. It is an introduction to potentiality, a possible global manifesto, an ontological journey of discovery towards an urgent planetary commons – in perpetuity, in futurity, for our children’s children’s children.
