A message for young Koories: Richard Green

“Learn our history and learn their history… [otherwise] they’ve got us.” Richard Green believes that to understand history helps everyone appreciate and embrace Indigenous culture, prevent recurrence of the past and allows people to “know where we’re going”. He tells specifically of Governor Phillip, Bennelong, Yemmerrawanne, Pemulwuy and the murder of McIntyre (Gov. Phillip’s huntsman).
