National Talkblack 140920

We had:

Dr Peta Murray, a Vice-Chancellor’s Postdoctoral research fellow at RMIT University discussing how the pandemic is bringing diaries back. She says that diary-keeping is having a resurgence, as people find it can help them during troubled times.

Peter Jeffries, Murujuga Aboriginal Corporation chief executive talking about the world’s largest collection off ancient rock art at Murujuga National Park re-opens. Traditional owners in the Pilbara hope a new trail will make ancient rock art and its stories more accessible to the community, while also protecting ancient sites.

Melanie Briggs, Senior midwife at Waminda and the first endorsed Aboriginal midwife in NSW and only the second in Australia discussing how Waminda’s Birthing on Country program is empowering Aboriginal women on the NSW South Coast.
