Dark Emu By Bruce Pascoe

Published by Magabala Books

The South East Tasmanian Aboriginal Corporation (SETAC) present acclaimed Aboriginal author Bruce Pascoe in 2020. Pascoe fronts a guest panel in conversation at the Port Cygnet Cannery.

The night is a key event for the new Ballawinne Festival which explores Aboriginal culture & knowledge through truth telling.

Dark Emu is praised as “the most important book about Australia, that should be read by every Australian.” (Marcia Langton).

The Dark Emu conversation will discuss where to from here? Our future, the environment, land management, Aboriginal equity and ideas of reconciliation will be on the table. Ticket price includes food and entertainment. The Cannery has a licensed bar with drinks available for purchase. The event takes place on Melukerdee country.

A vital community conversation on the pathway towards reconciliation, it will be followed by a Truth Telling event for the local Aboriginal Community on Tuesday 14 January at Fanny Cochrane–Smith Church Nichols Rivulet.

Dark Emu tickets will be in high demand and are available through Eventbrite.com.

Or call SETAC Head Office: (03) 6295 0004.

Long before the arrival of white men to Australia, Aboriginal people had complex and sustainable systems of agriculture in place. Pascoe reveals how “the hunter-gatherer tag,” used to describe First Nation people “turns out to have been a convenient lie that worked to justify dispossession.”

Bruce Pascoe is a writer of Tasmanian, Bunurong and Yuin descent. He has had a varied career as a teacher, farmer, fisherman, barman, fencing contractor, lecturer, Aboriginal language researcher, archaeological site worker and editor. He has collected a swathe of literary awards for Dark Emu and now he has brought together the research and compelling first person accounts in a book for younger readers.

The event is hosted by SETAC in partnership with Reconciliation Tasmania.
