Messages from our Elders was inspired by personal stories of hardship, cultural connection and survival from our Elders.
These messages were created whilst checking in with our old people during the COVID-19 isolation period, 2020. Their reminder of our strength and survival and their words of wisdom and comfort were too beautiful not to share.
We acknowledge their traditional lands in the photos their words are written on.
We thank them for sharing their precious gifts and we hope you find some personal meaning from them too.
Aunty Jeanette Kickett - Ballardong Elder
I am an elder within my community and feel very lucky to be on Country with my family during this time of the pandemic.
It will be great if we all understand the meaning of love and trust, be everyone uniting and respecting us as Elders.
Love you all and stay safe.
