‘Aboriginal people finally get the respect they deserve’: Australian Survivor recognizes the original trustees of the land where Brains V Brawn was filmed










Australian Survivor has recognized the traditional owners of the country where Brains vs Brawn is filmed.

On Monday, the reality show’s official Instagram posted a respectful acknowledgment, referring in particular to the region’s original administrators at Cloncurry in northwest Queensland.

“The producers of Australian Survivor recognize the Mitakoodi people, the traditional custodians, the traditional custodians of the land it was filmed on, and pay tribute to elders past, present and rising,” it read.

Viewers of the hit series were happy with the message and praised the program on the social media platform.

“Aboriginal people are finally getting the recognition and respect they deserve,” wrote one follower.

“This is what every episode should start with,” another suggested, even though this statement is featured at the beginning of every episode.

‘Thank you! I came here looking for a post like this. It is so important to recognize the crowd, the dreaming and spiritual ancestors of the country,” added one fan.

The recognition capitalizes on Network 10’s more inclusive position recently with regard to indigenous language, place names and landmarks.

In early July, Channel 10 replaced the names of Australian cities with traditional Aboriginal names in the weather reports.

The US Network has removed colonial place names to mark NAIDOC Week – a national event that celebrates the history and culture of the indigenous people.

Traditional names for cities across the country were changed on a map during the forecast and by weather host Amanda Jason.

It comes a month after Channel Ten publicly pledged to move the station in a more “socially progressive” direction.

Australian Survivor Brains vs Brawn continues on Tuesday at 7:30 PM on Ten
