On Wednesday the 23rd The Australian Museum will host an event celebrating First Nations resilience.

The event named  ngalu warrawi marri, meaning ‘We Stand Strong’ in the Sydney language,  will interrogate the way Australia celebrates national identity.

'We Stand Strong’ boasts a stellar line-up of well-known and up-and-coming Aboriginal artists, comedians, commentators and DJs.

ngalu warrawi marri is curated and facilitated by First Nations project officers, Courtney Marsh (Bundjalung) and Nathan Mudyi Sentance (Wiradjuri)

Some of the acts include the tongue in cheek comedy called BRORIGINALS.  BRORIGINALS is a live podcast recording - where two successful Aboriginal brothers, Travis and Texas De Vries, answer crowd-sourced questions on how to be a better Aboriginal.

The night also features Wiradjuri woman DJ Sovtrax with her   Sovereign Trax – the best of Aboriginal music “fuelled by decolonisation and First Nations sovereignty”.

'We Stand Strong’ also includes a Social Justice Tour where one can explore “what is never taught in schools”.

Also included in the program, the indigihack Spot Tours are a fun and  interactive tour exploring colonial biases in museums.

The full line-up of events can be viewed on the Australian Museum’s  website. “We Stand Strong’ is recommended for adults and youth 13 and up. It will take place on Wednesday 23 January 2019 (6.00pm - 9.00pm)
