TEDx Adelaide 2015 · November 2015
Mickey O'Brien opened TEDx Adelaide with a welcome to country blended into a story about what we can learn from 2000 generations of welcome.
He closes the event with words of wisdom and a goodbye ceremony, perhaps the first performed on a stage in Adelaide/Tarndanyannga.
As an Aboriginal person and descendant of the Kaurna (Adelaide Plains) and Narrunga (York Peninsula) peoples, providing cultural advice has been a responsibility passed down to Mickey by his father, well-known Kaurna elder, Lewis O’Brien. Mickey has been representing Aboriginal cultural issues for a number of years now, and it is a position he honours and respects, delivering with honesty and a balanced approach.
