Project - “Women, Caring for Women, Caring for Country”

Consistent with our objectives, this endeavour is designed to enable Elder Gumbaynggirr women to guide their people to become strong in their cultural ways of living with, working with and taking care of the land and waters of their country. They will be able to create a ‘camp’ where they can do ‘women’s business’.

It is envisaged that this will support the women and the community as a whole by...

• reinvigorating their lives

• meeting cultural responsibilities

• bringing back into the community, cultural ceremony, story, song and dance

• healing themselves and their families, their land, and their relationships, their way

• educating the young women in their culture and in their cultural responsibilities

• raising the children with cultural awareness for caring for the land and waters of their country
