Workshop 7:

Old economy, new ways  

1:45 pm - 3:15 pm | ICC Sydney

It has long been believed that the First Nations people of this country lead a 'hunter-gatherer' nomadic life. This concept was challenged with the compelling arguments presented with the release of Bruce Pascoe’s ‘Dark Emu’ in 2014.

However, to many Indigenous people, this is no new concept. Today we have many Indigenous businesses cultivating the land and using native ingredients in food and personal care products just as generations had done before.

In this session you will hear from Indigenous business owners who are growing, sourcing and using native ingredients for which there is a high demand in the commercial landscape.
