Guardians of this land: a First Nations perspective on security

What can we learn from First Nations Australians about our obligation to country? And is enough being done to protect native title owners from foreign interference?

In this episode of the National Security Podcast, Lieutenant Colonel Eileen Hall and Dr Danielle Ireland-Piper discuss what security means from an Indigenous Australian perspective, and how cultural knowledge and cultural safety can directly impact domestic and regional security.

Lieutenant Colonel Eileen Hall is the Australian Army's first Command Cultural Advisor to the Regional Force Surveillance Group.

Dr Danielle Ireland-Piper is an Associate Professor and Academic Convenor at the ANU National Security College.
