The Mabo Oration is a biennial event presented by the Anti-Discrimination Commission Queensland and QPAC. It celebrates and pays tribute to Eddie Mabo and the landmark High Court decision which legally recognised that Indigenous people had a special relationship to the land that existed prior to colonisation.
In 2019 the Oration featured Gamilaroi man and founder of @IndigenousX Luke Pearson as Orator and Torres Strait Islander woman Rhianna Patrick as host.
In this Oration, Luke discusses First Nations media representation in Australia and the role of current and future generations to tell their own stories in their words.
