Emily Wurramara’s Australia Day

Thursday 26th January / presented by Caitlin Nienaber

January 26: it’s the anniversary of the arrival of the First Fleet of British ships arriving at Port Jackson in NSW and the raising of the British Flag by then-governor Arthur Phillip.

It’s also a day that changed the course of the lives of our Indigenous people forever. Since 1994, it’s been a national public holiday, but there’s a growing movement for that date to change.

Musician Emily Wurramura is just one participant in that movement. She’s a proud Wannadilyakwa woman from the Northern Territory who chose the week of January 26 to release her new song Hey Love and she joined Breakfast with Caitlin to explain more.
