Jade Kennedy | Welcome to Country? | TEDxUWollongong 2018

Jade Kennedy is a Yuin man from the Illawarra and South Coast of New South Wales. He has been privileged with the intimate knowledges of his peoples customs, culture and Country, and attempts to honour this through the building of knowledge-based relationships grounded in respect, responsibility and reciprocity.

He is also a Lecturer in Academic Development and Recognition at the University of Wollongong, and is responsible for embedding Indigenous Knowledges and perspectives into the higher education curriculum. He currently achieves this through the Jindaola program, where he employs Aboriginal methods to engage interdisciplinary academic teams in a process of knowledge and curriculum reconciliation.
