    Event description

    Join Ballardong/Whadjuk Noongar woman Dr. Marion Kickett and Writing WA CEO Will Yeoman as they discuss what makes an Aboriginal Elder in today's society. Marion and Will are currently working on a collection of Aboriginal Elders' stories collected from around Western Australia, which will be published early next year by Leschenault Press.
