Our Way Stories | The Elders Book Project

Our Way Stories | The Elders Book Project

The project will record the life stories of 10 Elders from the Bundjalung nation / Northern Rivers region of New South Wales. It has been inspired by the energy and passion of Dale Roberts – a local Aboriginal woman who has worked along side our region’s most respected and loved Elders.

Dale said, ‘Ever since I can remember people were asking me, for years, about how to get in touch with Elders and speak to our Aboriginal mob’.
