Raising our Tribal Voice for Justice – Conference update day 2

As we hit the midway point of the “Raising Of Tribal Voice for Justice” conference at The University Of Divinity, Box Hill, the energy and momentum continue to build.

This historic gathering unites Indigenous theologians and church leaders from Australia, Aotearoa, and the Pacific. Together, we’re immersing ourselves in profound conversations that unveil the core of Indigenous theology and offer fresh perspectives on Australia’s colonial history.

Over the past two days, our esteemed speakers – Professor Dr Anne Pattel-Gray, Dr Josephine Bourne, Professor Stan Grant, Rev Dr Katalina Tahaafe-Williams, and Rev Aunty Janet Turpie-Johnstone – have delivered with inspiring keynotes, sharing invaluable Indigenous wisdom.

Day 3 is set to unfold with even more captivating discussions on truth, reparations, and justice, delving deeper into the rich tapestry of Indigenous perspective and experience.
A heartfelt thank you to our incredible sponsors, the pillars of support that make this event possible:
