Auntie Heather is the past Aboriginal co-chair for Reconciliation Queensland, and says, while she has a number of nationalities in her heritage, she is most proud of her aboriginality. "I've always wanted to do something, to make a difference... I want to give something back to help make the culture strong." she declares.
In this 3-part segment, just before Reconciliation Week 2017, Auntie Heather provides an insight into the history and significance of the Reconciliation movement, the "Defying the Borders' walks, the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Referendum and the 150th anniversary year of the cessation of the practice of "Blackbirding" . Next Monday we'll be talking with Auntie Melba Townsend from United Synergies about her work in the community, and local band @In2Nation !
