Rev. Djiniyini Gondarra OAM tells Richard Trudgen about the time he surprised one hundred judges about how structured Yolŋu law is. They discuss how recognising and going back to Yolŋu common law would help everybody.
Maratja Dhamarrandji asks Richard Trudgen, What is the meaning of evidence from a Balanda (mainstream) perspective? And why don't Yolŋu feel like they have security of tenure?
Djiniyini goes on to ask what social distancing is for. Richard says it’s to stop the spread of Covid-19. Djiniyini explains how goŋ-wukundi law was for the same reason – to stop the spread of disease.
Djiniyini Gondarra, Dr Kerry Mills and Richard Trudgen continue the conversation about how the virus can be floating in little droplets of mucus in the air. Djiniyini asks, “How do these viruses enter the body”?
