Following the AGMs there will be a forum ‘Young Aboriginal Perspectives on Reconciliation’
Awarded Ms NAIDOC 2016, Merinda is a Yorta Yorta Woman born in Shepparton and now lives off country in Melbourne. She is active in Indigenous Affairs, initiating and facilitating classes on Indigenous culture and history to students at Fitzroy High. Merinda is currently a trainee at the Department of Justice and Regulation.
Merinda is determined to spread the knowledge of Indigenous culture across Australia. “Aboriginal culture should be a big part of Australia’s history, but it’s just not taught,” she said. Culture is what makes us complete and without that, we have nothing. It’s about being a role model in Victoria, not just for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, but for non-indigenous Australians as well”.
On his father’s side Indi has ties to Muthi Muthi and the Boonwurrung and on his mother’s side he’s a Lardil man. Indi was awarded Mildura’s Young Citizen of the Year 2016 and Koorie Student of the Year 2016 in the Victorian Training Awards. Indi was nominated for 2015 Ricci Marks Youth Award and is a member of Dept of Human & Health Services Youth Reference Group. He is an Executive Member of Koorie Youth Council and is currently the Youth & Community Engagement Officer at Mallee District Aboriginal Services in Mildura.
