Because of Her, We Can - NAIDOC 2018

Article | Updated 2 weeks ago

During NAIDOC Week 2018 the country acknowledges the significant roles that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women play in all aspects of Australian society.

Here at the Western Australian Museum, we are honouring some of our female Aboriginal employees and the powerful contributions they make to our Museum.

Each of these women come to us from all over WA and Australia, and conduct very important roles at the Museum. They were invited to explore our vast Anthropology, Archaeology, and History collections housed at our Collections and Research Centre.

By choosing items which they had a personal connection to, they were able to share their story and the story of the strong women in their lives.
