Elders Cat Hero


Ngaluk Waangkiny

Meaning ‘Us Talking’ in Noongar, Ngaluk Waangkiny is a landmark, multi-media storytelling project designed to honour and preserve the legacy of Elders. Serving as a continuation of CAN’s Rekindling Stories on Country program, this project will document the significant stories of the Elders; their fight for human rights, their unique experiences and their contributions to the cultural landscape.

This project is creating a legacy for our Elder’s families, for our state and for our country.

The first iteration of the program in Boorloo (Perth) is partnering with ABC Perth, City of Perth and the Aesop Foundation to produce a film, podcast and book that will shine a light on how the Elders’ lived experiences have influenced their contribution to the City’s Reconciliation Action Plan, with the resulting creative works representing an important legacy for future generations of Noongar people.
