The  O’Week event, ‘Kaurna Walk: Another Side of Adelaide’ attracted more than 25 students who were led on a cultural tour around the Torrens and University Campus by two Kaurna cultural ambassadors, Uncle Frank Wanganeen and Taylor Power Smith.

Uncle Frank and Taylor used the Faculty’s Reconciliation mural to explain the Kaurna story of Tjilbruke, a Kaurna lawman who mapped out the Kaurna’s water sources for the travels from Adelaide to Victor Harbour.

The Law School hosted a visit by Maori Senior Lecturer Mr Andrew Erueti from the University of Auckland Law Faculty. Mr Erueti gave a seminar to staff and students about current developments in New Zealand relating to Maori rights. The Law School also hosted a morning tea for Aboriginal law students to meet Mr Ereuti. The Law School hopes to continue its connection with the University of Auckland which began in 2015 when Mr Alex Reilly took 19 Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander students to Auckland to meet and engage with Maori students as part of the Adelaide Law School’s 2015 Indigenous International Study Tour.
