Australia, we need to talk | Cally Jetta | TEDxPerth

Is reconciliation between Australia's Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples possible? Cally Jetta maintains that it is not. Instead, she proposes that to build a harmonious future, we need to think differently and address our nation's history honestly.

Cally Jetta is passionate about Aboriginal education and working with at-risk teens. She lives in Mandurah on Noongar country and has taught secondary students for 10 years.

Cally administers the Blackfulla Revolution Facebook page - an Aboriginal activism and education forum that encourages and supports understanding and respect between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
