Graham Taylor

2015
Male Elder of the Year

Graham Taylor is a respected Amangu Yamaji Elder from Western Australia.

After growing up on a reserve, Graham joined the army and served five and a half years, completing two tours. The first was to Vietnam, where he was a stretcher bearer, and the second to Malaysia, where he was a forward scout.

Graham is a Geraldton RSL stalwart, has never missed an ANZAC service and plays a key role in memorial activities each year. He works tirelessly for the recognition of Aboriginal servicemen and women, including getting a plaque mounted on the RSL remembrance wall acknowledging Aboriginal people who fought and died for their country.

Graham dedicated countless hours to the development of a Bundiyarra Corporation Gallipoli enactment and dugout display. He regularly shares stories with Mullewa High School students, talking about growing up, his time in the Army and his pride in being Aboriginal.
