Event description

Description

Sister Anne Gardiner AM, the 2017 Senior Australian of the Year, will deliver this year's Eric Johnston Lecture at the Northern Territory Library. Since arriving on Bathurst Island aged 22, Sister Anne has devoted 62 years of her life to supporting the Tiwi culture. She will talk about her efforts to enrich community, enhance opportunity and improve health outcomes for her beloved Tiwi people. An advocate of peace, love and the traditional Tiwi way of life, Sister Anne has worked tirelessly to document and preserve the Tiwi language for future generations.

The annual lecture series was established in 1986 and named in honour of the Administrator of the time, Commodore Eric Johnston, who was the inaugural speaker and a personal friend of Sister Anne's.
