The Precious Memories – Building a Library of Elders Oral History and Stories project will enable 20 Aboriginal Elders aged 50 years and over who were impacted by Stolen Generations removals to sharing their memories of childhood. Staff from Rumbalara Aboriginal Co-Operative, along with eight young people, will help plan and deliver the project. Older Stolen Generations members will overcome feelings of being outcast, reconnect to family, friends, community and country to develop a stronger sense of belonging while contributing to the Song lines, knowledge and understanding of their families’ and Communities history. They will be supported to recognise their trauma and grief, heal spiritually and emotionally and reconnect to their culture. This project will ensure the next generation has a knowledge base into the future.
