Humour can rise above the clamour of stereotypes, social media zealots and negative commentary. In this NAIDOC week a talented and funny troupe of Indigenous individuals bring us a new take on what they have to put up with in this Australia from social security, citizenship and equal wages to nuclear bombs and civil actions.  NAIDOC this year focusses on healing, and education with humour might just make a difference.

Trisha Morton-Thomas has inspired the concept of History Bites Back – a series which premieres on NITV and SBS VICELAND on Sunday 11 July at 8:30pm – directed, written and presented by Trisha Morton-Thomas (Occupation Native, The Song Keepers, Total Control) alongside Craig Anderson (Black Comedy, Occupation Native, Red Christmas), and starring Steven Oliver (Black Comedy, Faboriginal, Looky Looky, Here Comes Cooky) and Elaine Crombie (Nowhere Boys, Top End Wedding, Top of the Lake).
