In the context of postcolonial reconciliation movements, what does the embodied action (rather than the oft-heard metaphor) of ‘walking together’ encompass? In this keynote address, Helen Gilbert looks at long-distance walking performances by Aboriginal groups in Canada and Australia, and analyses them in relation to the process of public listening and the politics of truth and redress.
