NAIDOC Week is being held in Glebe 1st to 8th July 2012.
A documentary film, made in 1972, records the events surrounding the establishment of the Aboriginal Tent Embassy on the lawns of Parliament House. It incorporates interviews with black activists, the work of the National Black Theatre, Aboriginal Legal Service and Aboriginal Medical Service, footage from the demonstrations and arrests at the Embassy. This is the only film to focus on the Tent Embassy and is an historic document, integral to the comprehension of the Aboriginal political struggle. Erection of the Tent Embassy on the lawns of Parliament is the most symbolic action ever taken by Aboriginal people in their struggle for justice in their own land. “Ningla A-Na” presents an inside view of Aboriginal political life.
