Indigenous youth define their place in the world

Listen /

Steven Brown

“Modern stereotypes of indigenous identity do not define us as indigenous peoples, but oppress us from reaching our full potential as leaders in our communities,” wrote Steven Brown, an aborigine from Australia.

He spoke at the first international expert group meeting on indigenous youth held at the United Nations from the 29th to the 31st of January.

Gerry Adams spoke with Steven Brown about his thoughts on the meeting's theme–identity, hopes and challenges–and Australian society's treatment of its indigenous population.
