Mr McMullen’s lecture will focus on “Custodianship in the 21st Century”. It will explore the Indigenous connection to country and pay homage to the wisdom of Vincent Lingiari an Indigenous elder who led the walk-off at Wave Hill cattle station in 1966, in Kalkarndji, Northern Territory. It will also incorporate artwork from the Gurindji people.

The Vincent Lingiari lecture is presented by Charles Darwin University, the Australian Centre for Indigenous Knowledges and Education (ACIKE) and Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education.
