Colonial legacies and encroaching commercial forces threaten Indigenous cultures across the Asia-Pacific. Four champions of culture will tell us about their work preserving traditional languages, stories and knowledge and empowering communities in Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand – and how deeper engagement with Indigenous wisdom can benefit all societies.

Kewenangan kolonial dan aturan yang melanggar batas telah mengancam kebudayaan pribumi sepanjang Asia-Pasifik. Empat pemikir budaya ini akan menyuarakan karya-karyanya yang sekiranya bisa menjaga bahasa-bahasa lokal, kisah dan pengetahuan serta memberdayakan komunitas di Indonesia, Australia, dan Selandia Baru – dan sedalam apa hubungan antara kebijaksanaan lokal dapat bermanfaat bagi masyarakat.
