Nunami is joined by Kitana Mansell and Legana Hughes – two inspiring young palawa people both working in the Aboriginal community-controlled sector. In this episode you will hear them speak about their passion and enjoyment in working within the community and the development that they have received at their workplace. Legana and Kitana also share with us their favourite places to be on country and spoke to us about traditional foods and running lutruwita/Tasmania’s only Aboriginal catering company – palawa kipli. The two share their thoughts on NAIDOC week and what ‘Heal Country’ means to them – They speak of the excitement for being with community and on country for NAIDOC week and how they’re looking forward to the Ball in nipaluna this year.
Young nipaluna is a series of podcasts featuring the stories of young Aboriginal people across the city of Hobart. This series gives these inspiring young people an opportunity to share their experiences of this city as well as their thoughts on NAIDOC week and this year’s theme ‘Heal Country’.
Contributors to these podcasts include young Aboriginal people living, studying and working in the city and their stories highlight the importance of community gatherings, language revival and use, the need to amplify the younger generation’s voice and the necessity of Aboriginal land control and ownership.
Podcast presented by Nunami Sculthorpe-Green, on behalf of the City of Hobart’s Youth Arts and Recreation Centre in partnership with ABC Radio Hobart.
