October 2017: True Stories Project

Our True Stories: 1967-2017 project application has won support from the Western Australian Department for Culture and the Arts. The Project’s coordinator, writer researcher, Jan Teagle Kapetas, will explore the experiences of Yindjibarndi people from the 1960s when we came to live on the Roebourne Reserve and our memories, history and the stories of our lives over the past 50 years. Our plan is to create a book and short video docs that will remind our young people of the everyday heroes who have committed themselves to our community through all the challenges we’ve faced.
