Hon Linda Burney MP delivered the 15th annual Lowitja O’Donoghue Oration at Bonython Hall in Adelaide on Tuesday 31 May during National Reconciliation Week.

The Oration honours the influential Aboriginal leader, Dr Lowitja O’Donoghue AC CBE DSG and gives voice to vital issues for our nation’s first people.

Ms Burney, the first Indigenous woman elected to the Federal House of Representatives, chose as the title for her address ‘The Way Forward – Informed by the Past’.

Ms Burney delivered the Oration on the eve of being sworn in as Australia’s Minister for Indigenous Affairs – the first Indigenous woman to hold the position.

The Foundation is proud to collaborate with Reconciliation South Australia, The University of Adelaide and Flinders University for each year’s Oration, and to continue the important conversations on Reconciliation.

With thanks to 2022 Oration sponsors SA Power Networks, BHP and Government of South Australia.
