Event description

Description

First Nations, First Astronomers

The Moondani Toombadool Centre and the Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing at Swinburne University of Technology are proud to host the 2019 Swinburne Annual Reconciliation Lecture.

2019 is the International Year of Indigenous Languages, the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing, and the year Indigenous Astronomy was included in the Australian National Curriculum. These have spawned a number of activities and scholarship between astronomers and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander elders across Australia.

Join Gunnai and Yorta Yorta custodian Uncle Wayne Thorpe, Kamilaroi woman and astrophysics student Krystal De Napoli, and cultural astronomer Dr Duane Hamacher for an open panel discussion about the many layers of Indigenous astronomical knowledge and exciting happenings in the world of astronomy and space.
