The other night on triple j, as I was returning home, John Safran was critical of the absence of an aboriginal representative at the convensh. The dilemma for aboriginal people of preserving/promoting their culture while abandoning supernatural/superstitious belief is an interesting issue. It would be good to hear from an aboriginal atheist person.

Also, Dave Grohl. Just because he's the nice guy of Rock.
Funnily enough, this was something on my mind in 2016-7 and I did do some poking around to find research on this topic - as we discovered during the Cosmic Shambles Live tour, there's not many indigenous public figures who are openly atheist, and the scientists we found were often too busy.

It's not going to stop anyone looking though, so if you have any suggestions, feel free to post for the use of anyone who might want speakers for any future events.
