Survival Day, the other side of Australia Day

So for a lot of people Australia Day will be spent on backyard barbies, the cricket, but to many others Australia Day takes a different meaning.

This year Survival Day marks the 40th Anniversary of the Tent Embassy, a protest in Canberra to represent the political rights ofAustralia’s indigenous population.

The occasion will be recognised with an event at the Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute, where Radio Adelaide will be broadcasting live from 3pm.

Andrea Fraser from Radio Adelaide’s Nunga Wangga program spoke to Jordan Archer about the event, and started with an acknowledgement.
