2017 Mornington Peninsula Human Rights Oration

Event Date
14 Dec 2017 6:00pm to 9:00pm

The Mornington Peninsula Human Rights Group supported by Mornington Peninsula Shire will host the 2017 Mornington Peninsula Human Rights Oration.

This years keynote speaker features Peter Aldenhoven the President of Willum Warrain (Aboriginal Association Incorporated), an Indigenous rights advocate, and the Director of Indigenous Education at Woodleigh School. Originally from Stradbroke Island, Peter's passion has led him to be actively involved in promoting Indigenous rights and equality.

The Oration will address the politics of identity, ongoing cultural dismantling and absorption, and the importance of recognising Australia's First Peoples through a Treaty. Peter will also discuss contemporary connections to the history of the Boon Wurrung/Bunurong peoples on the Peninsula; along with the challenges for Aboriginal people living in post-colonial times, particularly as a result of the assimilation period.
