Professor Marcia Langton AM has long been at the forefront of Indigenous issues in Australia. As one of the nation’s most respected Indigenous academics, she is a frequent media commentator, speaking out passionately on issues such as Indigenous rights, justice and artistic expression. She is the first Associate Provost and Foundation Chair of Australian Indigenous Studies at the University of Melbourne, and in 1999 was one of five Indigenous leaders granted an audience with the Queen to discuss proposed changes to the Australian Constitution. Now, she’s the author of the first ever published travel guide to Indigenous Australia. Communications Manager Lina spoke to Professor Langton as part of Ecotourism Australia’s Respecting our Culture | Celebrating Diversity Through Ecotourism campaign.
