Ep. 163: Australian government tries to deport Indigenous people as “aliens”

MEDIA INDIGENA : Weekly Indigenous current affairs program

This week: State of Alienation. It was a country that didn’t even exist 120 years ago. Yet, today, authorities in Australia are convinced they’re somehow justified in declaring certain Indigenous people to be illegal ‘aliens,’ individuals the state feels it has the right to kick off the continent despite their connection to cultures which have occupied that continent for tens of thousands of years.

Joining host/producer Rick Harp back at the roundtable this week are Candis Callison, Visiting Professor of Canadian Studies at Princeton University and Kim TallBear, associate professor of Native Studies at the University of Alberta.
