Instagram Campaign Recognises Indigenous Place Names

Before Europeans divided Australia into its states and territories, our country’s Indigenous people followed a different map encompassing more than 500 clan groups. In a push to recognise our first peoples and the land we live on, a Gomeroi woman has successfully led an Instagram campaign to get Australia Post to add Indigenous place names to our addresses.

2SER Breakfast’s Alex James chats with campaign spearhead Rachael McPhail to learn more.
