Personal Insight

As one of the Stolen Generations, I’ve spent a lifetime of reconnecting and sharing my cultural heritage. There is a lot of healing still to do, which I have actively participated in. However one of the biggest and ongoing healing blocks is the lack of knowledge and understanding from non-Indigenous Australia. Introducing the people and culture behind the stereotype is my purpose so that Aboriginal Culture is normalised for everyone.
