Richard Weston, a descendant of the Meriam people of the Torres Straight, CEO of Healing Foundation, speaks in a second NationTalk interview from the Healing Our Spirit Worldwide (HOSW) 2018 event.

In this interview, Richard begins by elaborating on an organic, spontaneous event at HOSW, whereas a group of men gathered and honored all women at the HOSW event. Weston describes how the actions of the group of men relate to a locally themed event week, which also honored women in alignment with Indigenous culture and ways of thinking. He then carries on discussing healing the root causes of violence against women, from the perspective of the Healing Foundation, which is inherently related to the national inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) and many other Indigenous issues occurring in Canada.

Richard’s words and continued description provide supportive insight into the approaches utilized and the similarities of issues being faced by the Indigenous peoples of Australia and Canada in relation to a parallel or shared history.
