Aboriginal Tent Embassy: the world’s longest ongoing First Nations land rights vigil

“Despite growing up in Canberra, I only first heard about the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in 1998 at the age of 22. During that year I was employed by an Aboriginal agency to tutor First Nations primary school children…At the end of the final tutoring session, the student’s parents thanked me with hand painted gifts, including a rock featuring the Aboriginal flag on one side and ‘The Aboriginal Tent Embassy 1998’ on the other,” says Reconciliation Action Plan Working Group member, Michelle McDonald
