Indigenous populations worldwide have far too often faced problems that are not of their own making. These native peoples have many times lost their land, their culture, their language, their history … and too often their lives as others moved in to control. In comparing indigenous populations, the experiences of those in Australia and the United States far too often share many parallels. On this week’s Perspective program a look at how Australia has dealt with its indigenous problems, and if there are lessons there for the United States.  

Guest: Dr. Belinda Russon, Chief Executive Officer of Tranby National Indigenous Adult Education & Training.
