In this panel discussion, you’ll hear directly from members of the Tasmanian Aboriginal community, one of the oldest continuous cultures in the world, about how the limitations of the Western scientific tradition often delegitimise, exploit, and exclude Indigenous knowledge, leaving a gaping hole where some of the longest held human knowledge doesn’t register. With Nunami Sculthorpe-Green, Theresa Sainty, and Zoe Rimmer. This presentation was recorded on the Main Stage at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery during Beaker Street Festival 2022.


This video was recorded at Beaker Street Festival, an annual celebration of science and art held in Hobart, Tasmania each August.  It’s a place to share ideas, culture, and excellent Tassie food and drink — bringing warmth, connection and inspiration to lutruwita/Tasmania’s winter. The Festival promises entertainment, education, debate, and community in a participatory atmosphere.
