IN OUR OWN WORDS AN ORAL HISTORY PROJECT
To listen and to hear are two of the greatest gifts an Elder can bestow. Through the Aboriginal Oral History Project In Our Own Words, members of the local Aboriginal Community share their stories of heartache, love, resilience and empowerment.

Aboriginal culture is the oldest living culture on Earth and the Hunter Valley area is rich in deep cultural landscapes, stories and practices. In Our Own Words not only celebrates Aboriginal people and culture with stories of caring for country, preservation of culture and the deep sense of belonging, but how local Aboriginal people have adapted in a contemporary world, from enterprise development and economic opportunities, to social justice and education.

A defining feature of all those who took this journey was their love of the area and their commitment to a strong future for all Aboriginal people that recognises an often hard past while remaining focused on a strong future for the generations that will follow.
