Uncle Bruce had helped share our important Ngemba/Ngiyaampa stories about traditional aquaculture. He is an incredible historian and I respect & appreciate him & I'm sure many other communities who's stories are shared in Dark Emu do too. The abuse he is copping is unfounded
Well said @marcialangton. Thank you. ❤️❤️❤️
This is brilliant.
There’s something special in watching the conversation refocus before your very eyes.
Well done @marcialangton 🎩’s off.
Support to old Bruce there at Mallacoota too - I’ll be there one day to sample some bush-yam-Daisy’s! 🥔
In reply to @NITV
here you go - @marcialangton does a fine job dissecting all this crap.
For the people in the back.
The simple fact that a reply was even necessary is appalling and an indictment on our country. It shows we have such a long way to go. 😢
Heads up Josephine Cashman. How about you pull your head in. Cultural confirmation for yourself is a query so your hypocrisy is massive.
Our Pop had 2 ‘prove’ he didnt associate wit mob he had to prove he didn’t drink & he lived in a civilized manner & was thrifty maybe its about time whitefellas proved hw civilized & thrifty they are before .. blah blah you know the rest @mdavisqlder @marcialangton #truthtelling pic.twitter.com/ICMeWngfnH
Catch our very first episode of #TakeItBlak next week. Marcia Langton joined us to discuss January 26. Hint: there’s more 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
Good on you Professor Marcia Langton:
Your words carry the weight of authenticity ~ you know "full-well" whereof you speak.
In reply to @NITV
All clear and logical as usual I wish we had some people of this stature in government
finally ! I agree with Marcia Langton
In reply to @NITV
I didn’t know anything about Bruce Pascoe’s heritage when I read Dark Emu. I thought the book presented an interesting new understanding of its subject matter. I recommend the book for reading.
In reply to @NITV
I feel how draining it is to be going over & over the same thing, fighting for a justice you think has been dealt with until... From a distance, I have admired your strength, tenacity & eloquence for a very long time - a role model who taught me to keep going despite adversity 🙏
In reply to @NITV
Well said Professor Marcia Langton. Seems no one can show Dark Emu is incorrect so they go after the author of this brilliant book ? #auspol Shame on all who are attacking the author
In reply to @NITV
Brilliant! Anyone who criticises Pascoe should have to confirm a) they’ve read Dark Emu, and b) they are ashamed of the concept of “Terra Nullius”. If “no” to either, they have confirmed their irrelevance in the matter.
In reply to @NITV
We should have a registry of the descendants of genocidal maniacs. At least among the politicians, and big business "leaders"..
In reply to @NITV
I’m reading Dark Emu having just had it delivered. Seems very well researched and referenced. The author’s description of early white settler attitudes toward aboriginal people seem easy to understand and believe.
In reply to @NITV
the voice of reason, wisdom and unity.
In reply to @JennyPineapple2
Well said by @marcialangton disputing Joshephine Cashman and others deplorable damaging conduct, regarding recommendations of Aboriginal Identity Registrar. @KenWyattMP @PeterDutton_MP @IndigenousXLtd @wildblackwomen @TracyWesterman
Sit down Josie.
Retweeting again... because, As Professor Marcia says, running a campaign like this, isn’t something mob do...
Love this woman. Feisty and has a brain the size of a house
"In relation to claims Cashman has made about Bruce Pascoe's book Dark Emu I want to personally take issue. She's wrong. She hasn't read the book. She's believing people who are, for their own reasons, lying about what's in the book. All of Pascoe's references are correct."
In reply to @NITV
I listened to Bruce Pascoe read "Dark Emu" via @audible_com on my trip up to @TCMF_Official I think there is a lot of truth in Churchill's saying that "history is written by the victors" So much first peoples history lost or distorted to justify the occupation of this land. 💔
In reply to @NITV
Just read the book. Why is that such a hard thing to do? Afraid they might learn something?
In reply to @NITV
In reply to @NITV
Let's just say for the sake of argument that Bruce Pascoe is half-swedish & Half,-portuguese, what difference does that make to the conclusions of the meticulously researched & footnoted Dark Emu? When they play the man it shows they can't play the ball

It is beyond reprehensible that discussions like this are still needed. Whyte people, do better.
Also, I cited Pascoe in my recent @RGS_IBG paper, because I found it an authoritative and compelling text. Everyone should read 'Dark Emu'.
In reply to @NITV
Well said Marcia!! I think you should turn the tables and demand proof that Peter Dutton is in fact a human!!
In reply to @NITV
Well said, Professor Langton.
Here is Professor Marcia Langton speaking truth.
In reply to @NITV
Just a little bit of BRILLIANT
In reply to @NITV
Boom! The Prof is compelling
I ask for two retweets per year.
This is one of them.
In reply to @NITV
Ironically, the same people trying to claim Pascoe is fully white European descent and therefore his book is false, will repeat anything a white male historian (or non-historian) as truth.
Absolutely bloody brilliant response from @marcialangton to the attacks on #brucepascoe and #darkemu 🙌
In reply to @NITV
I've long been critical of Marcia Langton on her political engagments and things she has said over the years but she is absolutely correct here and I am happy to see she is being vocal in her opposition to someone she has previously worked with.
In reply to @NITV
In reply to @NITV
2/2 Now he wants to start on the First Nations people’s who have been mistreated since invasion day. Dutton is purely and simply a racist & a bigot and totally unfit to hold a Ministerial portfolio. @SenatorKristina_Keneally
disappointed this was even dignified with a response but this about sums it up
In reply to @NITV
Dutton has demonised and mistreated asylum seekers & refugees and got away with it scot free. He has introduced an unworkable character test into the Migration Act. Petty criminals with dual citizenship are now being deported & separated from their families. 1/2
In reply to @NITV
Thanks. Cashman has motives other than those presented.
“She’s wrong. She hasn’t read the book. All of Pascoe’s references are correct.”
In reply to @NITV
The idea of a register, abhorrent. Well spoken by Prof Langton.
This should be the last word on any challenge to Bruce Pascoe's Aboriginality. Professor Marcia Langton has far more authority to speak on the matter, than has Josephine Cashman.
In reply to @NITV
❤️🥰Marcia 👊🏾💪🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
In reply to @NITV
Josephine Cashman is a cvnt and a traitor to her own people
Maybe we should be questioning her heritage?
#BrucePascoe #DarkEmu great to see such support for Bruce. It is important the issues his book highlighted didn’t get lost in a petty argument over confirmation of his heritage.
In reply to @NITV
This is a really solid rebuttal re #DarkEmu and #BrucePascoe ... isn't it an interesting coincidence that attacks on Pascoe line up with emerging understanding & acknowledgement and value of cultural rights and practices for Aboriginal people...
In reply to @NITV
Arica Langton shows the anti-Bruce Pascoe mob the charlatans they are.
Outstanding work @marcialangton. Thank you 👏
Fellow white Australians, there’s some interesting conversations going on at the moment. There’s never been a better time to shush and listen.
In reply to @NITV
THANK YOU Marcia!!! ✊🏽✊🏽✊🏽
In reply to @NITV
How about putting forward Professor Marcia Langton's name again for Australian of the Year she doesn't need to be the senior nominee she can stand for all. I know she is confrontational and says it like it is, but it's time for that. Go again
In reply to @NITV
Appalled by obviously politically motivated attacks on Bruce Pascoe who contributes so much to Australian culture and well being. Clear concise response from Marcia Langton. Thank you!
In reply to @NITV
It’s time Australia stopped persecuting Aboriginal people. We need to move beyond the RW white supremacy ideals being peddled by #cashman #dutton & @LiberalAus @abcnews
In reply to @NITV
My childhood hero, rearrange my life age 17 and justifiably so, powerful, continue to rectify correct & nullify white Australia distorted views and ignorance of true reality of Aboriginal people authenticity
In reply to @NITV
Thanks Marcia @marcialangton it’s certainly not government business. The Federal Government has one job for First Nations Peoples: Voice, Treaty, Truth
Listen to this

All very calm

All very cogent

This beat up must have @PeterDutton_MP salivating

Just back off and let people be!
brilliant! as an ally, i love what @marcialangton has said
In reply to @NITV
Check out the Tasmanian Aboriginal Corps comments on Bruce Pascoe. I wonder if they will listen to Professor Langton or attack her as well.
We call alll learn from this brilliant literary work. Our First Nation peoples can teach us so much. I urge people to read this book! @XavierLlandilo it’s a core text for my staff
In reply to @NITV
As soon as I saw this suggestion and what was being done and that it had been referred to that scum Dutton my blood chilled. Visions of nightmares from history paraded through my mind. I’m not indigenous. I am however an atheist and I know what would be next...
In reply to @NITV
🛑 stop and watch this.
In reply to @NITV
DNA would clear these terrible accusations up?
In reply to @NITV
I read a blog someone made detailing Bruce's genealogy so they could refute his claim of Aboriginal heritage. I can't find it now but will share here once I do. The creator of it must fear what Bruce has to say in Dark Emu. Which is of course extremely absurd.
In reply to @NITV
Here here, thank you for standing up and sharing the truth of this Marcia.
In reply to @NITV
Thank you Marcia. My family suppressed it's convict origins. I'm hoping I have some Aboriginal ancestry too, but will never know as that would have been suppressed by the racist society.
In reply to @NITV
Better idea - how about creating a document for everyone that isnt, and see how that works!! Opt In, and prove you're not 🤔🚀science.
