Indigenous people are the world’s great survivors. In the face of land theft, climate change and genuine attempts to bring about extinction, Indigenous populations across the globe persevere. The resilience and adaptability of these populations are increasingly providing vital lessons in survival for all – how would embracing Indigenous culture and ways of thinking help Australia survive the impacts of climate catastrophe?
