Dr Miriam-Rose Ungunmerr Baumann, an Australian aboriginal elder, teacher and artist, will be in the Vatican from the 29th May to the 3rd June.
During her week-long visit, she will speak on themes of spirituality, ecology, and reconciliation between the Church and Indigenous Australians.
Dr Ungunmerr Baumann is expected to meet with Pope Francis, and attend a number of events with senior figures in the Vatican.
The Australian Ambassador to the Holy See, Chiara Porro, said on Thursday that she was “thrilled” to announce the trip, calling it an “emotive journey by one of our country’s most respected Indigenous leaders.”
