lets walk the mile, lets reconcile

It was wonderful to celebrate the start of Reconcilation Week with a luncheon in Healesville. An annual event on the calendar, it's wonderful to catch up with community members and elders.

Speakers on the day included Aunty Dot Peters, Andrew Peters and Peter Ruzyla (CEO of EACH). All of them compelling, challenging the notion of reconciliation and identity.

Yarra Ranges is proud to acknowledge our indigenous heritage and work positively with our indigenous community in many ways.
