To celebrate this year's Reconciliation Week at ANU and recognise the 50th Anniversary of the 1967 Referendum, there will be a series of guided lunchtime walks to englighten people about the Indigenous heritage of Acton campus.
Join archaeologist and esteemed alumnus Dave Johnston, Director of Aboriginal Archaeologists Australia on a stroll around some of the campus's scarred trees - ANU is fortunate to have both Aboriginal and European cultural scars which demonstrate the landscape of the past and the traditions of local Aboriginal people. Meet us at the lawn in front of the Coombs building.
Monday 29 May, 12-1.30pm - Scarred Tree Walk with Dave Johnston
Join Wally Bell, Ngunawal Elder on a tour of the Acton Campus highlighting some of the important natural and cultural features of the landscape and their importance to Aboriginal culture.
