Bicultural business with AIATSIS CEO Craig Ritchie

During Reconciliation Week 2021, Aboriginal Way attended the first AIATSIS Summit at the Adelaide Convention Centre. This was a combination of the National Native Title Conference and Indigenous Research Conference usually held separately.

Delegates from around the country attended the summit, where academics, legal experts, and community sectors shared the challenges regarding research and native title.

Craig Ritchie is the CEO of AIATSIS which stands for the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies. In this episode, the Dhunghutti man shares what it’s like to be an Aboriginal bureaucrat operating “biculturally in a white system”.
