OUR MEDIA KEEPS OUR CULTURE STRONG THROUGH THE GENERATIONS

I am a Butchella/Jagera woman living on Yawuru Country. Our Media Keeps Our Culture Strong Though the Generations as our old people are telling our stories, speaking our languages and showing our dances, ceremony and cultural practices to our young people.

OUR MEDIA IS OUR IDENTITY

I am from Darwin and I am involved in our media industry through my work at Indigenous Remote Communication Association (IRCA). Our Media is Our Identity; a vehicle for sharing our culture and languages with everyone. We are able to tell our stories our way and in our own communities. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have a lot to share as we have been here for 60,000 years.

OUR MEDIA CONNECTS OUR COMMUNITIES

I am the Senior Broadcaster with Radio 4MW and present the Breakfast Show at Torres Strait Islanders Media Association (TSIMA) on Thursday Island. It is great to be part of the Indigenous Media sector, looking at the strong achievements by a lot of our pioneers since the beginning in the late 70's. Our Media Connects Our Communities, it is a very important way to inform, educate and entertain our listeners. It covers positive stories of what's happening in our region and gives a voice to our people, while also educating the wider Australian community about Indigenous Affairs and issues.
