This episode is a collection of interviews with Uncle Rick and Vic Say about the gold rush era and what was really happening with the Dja Dja Wurrung at that time. Stories of human connection and mutual respect and help shine a different light on a time that has been characterised as one of greed and destruction on so many levels.

This is part 7 of a series called Dja Dja Wurrung Radio made by Uncle Rick Nelson and Alison Hanly. It was made possible by a community grant from the Mount Alexander Shire Council and was created for MAINfm to be aired as short 5-10 minute segments in 2015 and 2016.  For ease of listening we have edited them together and have linked episodes by theme rather than representing the order they were originally broadcast in.  

The series was shortlisted for the 2016 Reconciliation Victoria Community Hart Awards.
