Listening to First Nations knowledge to inform Earth-centred, collaborative governance: Women's Climate Conversations 2021 #6

Sunday, 10 October 2021 - 11:00am to 11:30am

 

Dr Mary Graham explains aspects of the relationalist ethos and the law of mutual obligation:

 

“The environment looks after us,   keeps us alive and keeps us human and then we are  obliged  to do that back. ”  

 

 Dr Michelle Maloney decolonises her own mind and has hints for others:

 

“What kind of culture thinks that trashing the joint and moving on is Ok ? and that’s  what colonization has been”.

 

Dr Mary Graham a Kombu-merri and Wakka Wakka person from SE Queensland and Dr Michelle Maloney  National Convenor,  Australian Earth Laws Alliance are working on a book together titled: “Future Law”. How indigenous first laws, the relationist ethos and ecological governance   can   be a foundation for our future .”
