Aboriginal Tent Embassy, Canberra

Always Was, Always Will Be from Ebony Butler on Vimeo.

The aboriginal ‘Tent Embassy‘ directly opposite Parliament House in Canberra is an interesting and vibrant place, where Australian Police are not even allowed to enter, nor stand on a piece of their land, unless given permission by the elders. I happened to be in Canberra for a climate action summit, and spent two days at the ‘tent embassy’ with the elders who took a liking to me. The police crossed the line onto aboriginal soil that day and I captured a rare piece of footage, the filming insisted by the elders and leaders of their ‘tent embassy’.
