To coincide with NAIDOC week BHCAC in collaboration with Ondru brings Yumarrala Ngulu: give voice, stories of courage and strength by the Stolen Generations.
Yumarrala Ngulu: give voice is an art project that aims to honour the Stolen Generations, embodying their courage and strength through their own voice and creating a space for healing. The project primarily focuses on providing a voice for women’s experiences of the Stolen Generations while sharing their stories of family, love, hope and their dreams for the future. The stories have been told directly by the women or in some cases shared by family members.
The project strives towards a more compassionate and connected society, creating a space for dialogue with the broader community that encourages shared understanding of the historic struggles of Aboriginal women. This dialogue begins by acknowledging and respecting their unique stories and communicating the need for recognition.
Reconciliation is about acknowledging and respecting the history and dignity of Aboriginal peoples to build better relationships between the wider Australian community and Aboriginal peoples.
Yumarrala Ngulu means ‘give voice’ in the language of Woiwurrung. Woiwurrung is an Indigenous language spoken by the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation of Central Victoria
