To celebrate NAIDOC Week we're bringing you a special conversation from the event A Day of Ideas that featured in Perth Festival 2021. 

This is a conversation amongst women; those who serve as the umbilical cord and connect the water and its nutrients to community. Featuring an inter-generational panel of entrusted leaders they tell tales of water, women’s lives and regeneration. 

The theme for NAIDOC Week this year is ‘Heal Country’ and this important conversation delves into the healing of the Derbarl Yerrigan (Swan River) and so much more. 

Speakers: Dr Roma Yibiyung Winmar, Mrs Elizabeth Hayden, Vivienne Binyarn Hansen, Dr Hannah McGlade, with Kylie Bracknell [Kaarljilba Kaardn]

NB: Nanna Viv was born in Beverley and grew up in Brookton.
