A Voice for the Future
Join the livestream for the 2023 Dungala Kaiela Oration.
The Dungala Kaiela Oration is co-hosted annually by the Kaiela Institute and the University of Melbourne. This major event challenges and inspires the creation of a shared cultural identity and the building of an inclusive vision of nationhood and prosperity of the Yorta Yorta and other First Nations peoples.
The Oration challenges the region and our nation to create a better future, to formally recognise Yorta Yorta and other First Nations people and to build a culturally inclusive nation. It shines a light on the ‘Nanyak’, the invincible spirit of the Yorta Yorta and other First Nations peoples in promoting a path for prosperity and productivity within an inclusive respectful society.
In this 15th year of the Dungala Kaiela Oration, we are delighted and honoured to have renowned constitutional lawyer and public law expert Professor Megan Davis, Pro Vice-Chancellor Society (PVCS) at UNSW Sydney. Professor Davis is also the Balnaves Chair of Constitutional Law, a UNSW Scientia Professor, a Professor of Law and Director of the Indigenous Law Centre UNSW Law.
