Across the Commonwealth, colonial governments drew on British law to create founding documents as the basis of government and British cultural dominance to create the foundational narratives as the basis of society. Colonisation sought to usurp customary laws and traditions and systems of governance that had been fine-tuned on Country and in Community through centuries. How are women of the First Nations throughout the Commonwealth working for their communities and families in the face of this colonial power and its ongoing legacies? And what are their on-going hopes and challenges? Facilitated by Dr Sandra Phillips, leading First Nation women from Australia, Canada and New Zealand tell it like it is.
