Seven days ago we were wrapping up the celebration of our Indigenous female employees for NAIDOC Week, but who says it needs to be limited to once a year?! If you missed our Facebook posts, here’s a recap.

Something you will find at my market stall next Sunday is my handmade Bunya Nut Necklaces 🌲🧡
A bargain at only $5 🍃
You can even get one customised to say whatever you like ✨
.
Bunya Nuts come from the majestic Bunya Pine Tree, which are Native to South East Queensland (particularly within the Bunya Mountains). One pine cone itself can weigh up to 10kg and contains approximately 60 bunya nuts encased inside. They were traditionally shared among thousands of different Aboriginal Australians across Queensland and NSW, who would trek for miles for a massive gathering every 1-3 years upon harvesting time 🍂💛❤🖤💙

✨Handmade
✨Pyrography designs
✨Lightly sanded
✨Copper wire detail

We sent the drone up one afternoon and it was attacked by wild cockatoos 😱 No joke. They swooped it and hovered around until we retreated and landed the drone 😫 On the bright side, we had it up long enough to get a few shots of the harbour. #airspacedrama #youcantflyhere #birddrama

Ghenoa Gela is a super captivating performer and storyteller. Whether solo, with @hotbrownhoney or in the current @bellshakespeare production Julius Caesar, Ghenoa is a must see.

My Urrwai. Sydney, Australia.
•
Ghenoa Gela - little sister, daughter, granddaughter, comic, teacher, rebel, gold medallist, air guitarist, charmer, TV star, Torres Strait mainlander, walking political statement – has made a show.

This is your invitation into the complex political, social, colonial and cultural expectations she navigates every day.

Ghenoa is a recipient of both the renowned Keir Choreographic Award and the Deadly Funny Melbourne International Comedy Festival Award. Laughter and deep reflection go hand in hand in this unique and intimate story told through movement and words.

My Urrwai is a revealing reflection on and celebration of cultural and familial inheritance, and an unflinching comment on race relations in Australia.

Because of her, we can. 
I have been influenced greatly by Indigenous women, including family, friends, elders, politicians, athletes and celebrities. We don’t have culture without our women, they’ve carried our Dreamtime stories, connections, language and knowledge to keep our culture thriving for over 65,000 years! They continue to fight for our culture, for equal rights, justice and land rights. 
I think of all the women over the years who’ve inspired me, loved me and nurtured me and a lot of them have been Indigenous. To name a few: 
Aunty Cindy, an elder from primary school and high school - she taught me to carry my anger with grace, to not throw hatred toward people who’ve done us wrong but instead educate and fight fairly and peacefully for our rights and our culture. 
Aunty Pearl, my Nan’s sister who, for all my life I can remember has been fighting for land rights, for our people and for our family. She inspires me, to be incredibly passionate about where you come from and to not let anyone knock you down without getting back up over and over again. 
And of course my Nan, who I love so dearly, she has been the one to teach me the most, teaching me language which may be very broken but so very special to me. My nan is very very passionate and loud - will always say what’s on her mind and LOVES our people and our culture - she sets off a fire inside me and I love her unconditionally. 
THANK YOU to all my beautiful girls, I love you. I’m so honoured to be Aboriginal and to be a woman. HAPPY NAIDOC WEEK 🖤💛❤️

We had a great time celebrating NAIDOC Week last week. Despite the week coming to an end, the recognition and celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continues year round, especially for people like Olivene who works to develop the cultural capabilities of our organisation. We asked Olivene or "Oli" what woman inspires her everyday. #BecauseOfHerWeCan #NAIDOCWeek

Get the facts on #Aboriginal and #TorresStraitIslander incarceration. We are calling for urgent action to address this crisis! #aboriginalaustralia #indigenous
We celebrated the last day of NAIDOC Week (National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee) by viewing some of the incredible work on show in Sydney by John Mawurndjul. #naidocweek #naidoc2018 #aboriginal #torresstraitislander #art

😍 #views like this make me regret ever leaving #hellotorresstrait in the first place. Oh, and the water is that colour pretty much all year-round 😊 Sometimes it’s windy as hell (like it’s been for the past few weeks) and other times it’s grease calm.

You are the only one that can start it! Let's get it mob ❤️🖐🏿

I'm so grateful to be living in this beautiful country, where the red earth meets deep blue ocean. As NAIDOC week ends, we reflect on the history and celebrate the culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders - our first people. Congratulations to all who have been a part of activities in various communities around the country.

I grew up with this view 👀 I'm standing on the veranda of my childhood home (correction: teenage years). Mind the holes in the flooring and the skinny (no calf-having) legs. Looking at this pic, I wish I was wearing an influencer-esk outfit 💃 But, I went fishing that very day and smelled like fish 🐟 I broke a nail, cut my foot and was sunburnt head to toe. #worthit

Sadly, Indigenous women’s role in our society has often been invisible, unsung or diminished. This years theme for NAIDOC week celebrates the essential and active roles that Indigenous women have played and continue to play in our society. "Because of her we can". This is me with Indigenous singer songwriter Casey Donovan.
