PROJECTS & EVENTS
MURAMA INDIGENOUS YOUTH SUMMIT 2016
We begin and share Aboriginal cultural knowledge in a way which brings the greatest understanding- Aboriginal peoples, cultural expressions and language in one shared space. It begins here on the land which once belonged to the Wann-gal peoples. Murama is about working with our young Aboriginal youth leaders to ‘Stand Tall and Walk Strong’.
