We cannot do that unless we talk honestly about a history of dispossession and genocide.  These are difficult and painful issues but are essential if we are to have genuine reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

To begin the first of several conversations over the coming months, Sharon and Arnagretta are joined by Professor Kate Auty.
