In this episode Nunami sits down with Tyenna Hogan who shares her experience of growing up in the centre of nipaluna, about her first semester at the University of Tasmania, where her passion for Aboriginal justice issues stems from and what she hopes to achieve in the future. Tyenna also tells us why learning and sharing language (palawa kani) has been so important for her. We hear about her experience in the Youth Arc space, her time with SEED and what NAIDOC and ‘Healing Country’ means to her
Young nipaluna is a series of podcasts featuring the stories of young Aboriginal people across 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.
