Description

Since Federation, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have served in Australia's military forces in times of war and peace.

This is despite for many years, being denied their full citizenship rights on their return to civilian life.  That said, military service was an inspiration to aboriginal activism in the cause of seeking equal rights and recognition.

Joining me this episode is Dr Noah Riseman, a contributor to the book, Serving our country : indigenous Australians, war, defence and citizenship.
