This NAIDOC Week, we welcome two guests to the show to discuss legislation, risk, best practice, storytelling as a tool for change, and the concept of Free, Prior, and Informed Consent (FPIC).

Australia has a crucial responsibility to protect and respect First Nations cultural heritage; there are serious consequences if things go wrong.

The recently launched Dhawura Ngilan Business and Investor Guides are the only First Nations-led resources on proactive best practice.

This week, Senior Journalist Rose Mary Petrass welcomes two guests to the show: Rachel Perkins and Anirudha (Anu) Nagar.

Rachel is an Arrernte and Kalkadoon Indigenous woman. She is a widely celebrated filmmaker, founder of Blackfella Films, and Executive Director of Cultural Heritage for the National Native Title Council (NNTC) and the First Nations Heritage Protection Alliance (FNHPA).

Anu is the NNTC's Director of Clean Energy and Investment. He comes from a background defending the rights of Indigenous communities in development projects in South Asia, police accountability at the Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative, and prosecution at the International Criminal Court.
