Stories of Resilience

Kalyakoorl Overview Mob

OVERVIEW

This book is dedicated to the ten courageous, wise and trailblazing Elders who generously shared their life’s journey during this storytelling project.

Their triumphs over adversity, tireless fight for human rights and constant advocacy for respect and recognition leaves a powerful and lasting legacy.

We pay our respects to the Elders who passed during the making of this book and we thank them for gifting their stories so future generations can learn from them, heal and move forward.

This book shares images and vignettes of each of their lives. It serves to complement a series of in-depth podcast interviews featuring each Elder, and a short film documenting their reconciliation journey with the City of Perth.

Their stories, in their words – their legacy. Always was. Always will be. Aboriginal land.

This publication has been generously supported by the Aesop Foundation. Aesop’s focus on story-telling and literacy recognises that stories offer the opportunity to share our own experiences and help us to gain an insight into the lives of others. It fosters cultural richness and, in turn, empowers people to share their stories in their own words and their own ways.
