In Conversation: Saltwater People July 02 2013

 A NAIDOC Week event: 11 July, 2013.

The coastal clans of the Dharug, Eora and Dharawal Nations lived along the Bondi to Cronulla coastline for tens of thousands of years. They were the custodians of the beaches and the many creatures who inhabited this interface between land and sea. Their rich culture and sustainable lifestyle holds many lessons for the current Saltwater People in addressing the environmental issues confronting the ocean beaches. Join author of Saltwater People of the Fatal Shore John Ogden andHeather Goodall as they discuss the stories and history of the coastal clans within the book.
