Description

In partnership with the State Library of New South Wales, the Indigenous Literacy Foundation invites you to a special NAIDOC WEEK event celebrating...

BECAUSE OF HER WE CAN

Mary Vanbee and Jessie Moora from Yakanarra Remote Community (Kimberley, WA) and Nina Black from Milikapiti Remote Community on Melville Island (NT) are just a handful of women in remote communities who are working to preserve their language and culture.

Working with our Foundation, they have helped children in their communities create stories and songbooks, which are now published and available through our Community Publishing Project.

Join us for a special presentation from our Program Manager, Tina Raye, to learn more about what impact these remarkable women have had and continue to have.

Gallery Room, State Library of New South Wales
