The Dungala Kaiela Oration

The Dungala Kaiela Oration is hosted jointly by the Kaiela Institute and the University of Melbourne. The oration celebrates Aboriginal cultural identity with the goal of creating a shared vision for the people of the greater Goulburn Valley region and promoting Aboriginal development.

The Dungala Kaiela Oration is held in the middle of the year in Shepparton.

The 2022 Dungala Kaiela Oration was delivered on Wednesday 31 August by Professor Wiremu Doherty to the theme of ‘Indigenous knowledges, prosperity, and productivity’. Professor Doherty, CEO of tertiary organisation Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārang in New Zealand, explored the outcomes of Maōri-led education models on people, communities and economies.
