Burdiya Yarns - In conversation with Elders from Boorloo (Perth)
Meet the Burdiya (bosses) leading the way for respect, recognition and reconciliation in Boorloo (Perth). Join Noongar presenter Phil Walleystack as he sits down for a yarn with the Elders and discovers the stories and experiences that have inspired their fight for change. Their stories are inspiring, powerful and sometimes heart breaking – but they have been laid bare so future generations can hear an Aboriginal perspective of our history. Our Burdiya yarners are: Uncle Walter Eatts, Uncle Farley Garlett, Uncle Ben Taylor, Aunty Margaret Culbong, Uncle Noel Nannup, Uncle Albert McNamara, Aunty Irene McNamara and Aunty Muriel Bowie. Refreshments will be provided during the session. To find out more about the Ngaluk Waangkiny - Us Talking project on the CAN website. Presented in partnership with Community Arts Network, Ngaluk Waangkiny - Us Talking, is a multimedia truth telling project documenting the lives of these trailblazing Elders.
