We recently said goodbye to Maam-yok (Aunty) Doolann Leisha Eatts, a founding member of our Elders Advisory Group.
Aunty Leisha was an active member of her community, running cultural programs in schools and teaching language classes. Recognised in 2001 as NAIDOC Female Elder of the Year, Aunty’s legacy and story will live on her books, including her autobiography.
We are incredibly grateful for the advice, patience and generosity shared by Aunty.
Tomorrow (29 April), on the day of the funeral, the flags will be lowered to half-mast.
