Description

Noongar man Ezra Jacobs will discuss Wadjemup/Rottnest Islands’ Aboriginal heritage, including traditional Whadjuk Noongar connections and the Islands colonial history of imprisonment for Aboriginal men and boys from 1838-1931. Ezra will share his experience as a young Whadjuk Noongar man to raise awareness of the deeper connection of Wadjemup’s Aboriginal culture and history with contemporary concepts of truth telling and healing.
