In My Blood It Runs - Canberra - Monday 30th March
Ten-year-old Dujuan is a child-healer, a good hunter and speaks three languages. As he shares his wisdom of history and the complex world around him we see his spark and intelligence. Yet Dujuan is ‘failing’ in school and facing increasing scrutiny from welfare and the police. As he travels perilously close to incarceration, his family fight to give him a strong Arrernte education alongside his western education lest he becomes another statistic. We walk with him as he grapples with these pressures, shares his truths and somewhere in-between finds space to dream, imagine and hope for his future self.
With the guidance of Arrernte Elders, In My Blood It Runs focuses on education in and beyond the classroom, and magnifies the profound successes that are rarely captured by mainstream narratives. It aims to creatively highlight the strengths and insights of Dujuan, his family, his community and through their story, First Nations families everywhere.
