The Aboriginal Tent Embassy, established on January 26, 1972, is a significant site of protest and advocacy for Indigenous Australian rights and land sovereignty. Located in Canberra, it began as a peaceful protest against the government's refusal to recognize Aboriginal land rights and has since become a powerful symbol of the ongoing struggle for Indigenous rights in Australia.
Pat Eatock, an Aboriginal activist and leader, was instrumental in this movement, dedicating her life to fighting for justice and equality for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, often highlighting issues of discrimination and working towards political and social change.
