Who is nature? Indigenous Australian and Latin American dialogues with country

Presenters: Professor Adrian Hearn, Dr Steve Kelly, Adrian Medina and Uncle Dave Wandin

The question “Who is Nature?” implies the natural environment’s vital capacity for agency and interaction. Around the world this vision of nature is shared by First Nation communities who have developed sophisticated mechanisms of give-and-take with lakes, plants, landscapes, and other natural phenomena. Nature is not viewed as a resource to be owned or extracted but rather as a complex entity to respect and engage in dialogue.
