Yorta Yorta (Jotijota): Are indigenous Australian people who inhabited the area surrounding the Goulburn & Murray rivers. Their name mean "no" & their language is isolated but related to the Pama-Nyungan language family. There is 9 clans under the Yorta Yorta. Pre-Colonialism the population was estimated around 2,400 & by 1873 were disposed from their ancestral land into reservations. Between 1960 & 1993, they sued the Victorian state for compensation of removal or stolen land with 17 attempts.

“My name is Lena-Jean Charles and I am a Yorta Yorta woman from Mooroopna/Shepparton currently living in Melbourne. Photography has been a passion and hobby of mine since childhood. I got my first camera for a school camp in grade four – back when film cameras were still a thing and you had to wind the film before taking the shot. Ever since, I have loved being able to capture moments by looking through the camera’s viewfinder, composing the image and snapping the shutter button.

A couple of years ago, my friends convinced me to start a Facebook page where I could share some of my photos. This is where my photography took off. I started getting asked to do all kinds of photography jobs. From family portraits, to cake smashes, to weddings, to parties and sport events. Each experience has taught me so much about photography and my creativity and how much I love candid/natural photos. 
I’ve had the opportunity over the last few years to photograph the 3 Rivers touch footy carnival. This is one my favourite carnivals to be a part of. I love the atmosphere and strong sense of Community it provides. A highlight for me is being able to capture all the action shots – especially when someone scores a try and then celebrates. I want to thank the Community and the 3 Rivers Festival for supporting my photography and trusting me to create memories for you all. Can’t wait to see you all at the festival in November.” Huge thank you to Lena-Jean for capturing all of the special moments of the Three Rivers Festival and supporting our community gathering! 👏🏾🙌🏾 #photography #festivals #yortayorta #shepparton #moama #nsw

A quick pic tonight before heading to dinner with Uncle Boydie and Dad, behind Uncle is a big portrait that sits proudly on @sam_shepparton is of Uncle Dan Cooper who died at war, he looks over the statue of his father and Uncle Boydie’s grandfather- Uncle William Cooper. So proud to share a blood line with these strong Yorta Yorta men and lucky to be able to sit with Unk and hear about our family, his memory of cumerra and the walk off, of our Wollithica clan and ‘the mother to us all’ granny Kitty. Glad to have more time with family now, lots of catch up to do with work/life balance. 🌿💛🌿💛🌿 #shepplife #YortaYorta

So I’m heading out to Europe for a little bit to share my Aboriginal culture and maybe even sing a couple of songs. I’ll be back real soon, but while I’m away, PLEASE keep the love for “Rain” going. Continue downloading, and listening to Triple M radio, particularly @jane_l_kennedy  and @mickmolloy66 on @kennedymolloy which is broadcast all over Australia, to hear the song. And remember, every dollar you spend downloading the track goes to help our farmers!! #buyabale #darlow #yidaki #helpingourmates #yortayorta https://itunes.apple.com/au/album/rain-feat-scott-darlow-sarah-mcleod-adam-brand-jack/1435744863

9 years ago I took the initiative to take control of my self education.  I hated reading as I got frustrated with how long it took to read and interpret the words on a page.
Yesterday I finished my 200th book.  After reading this many books I developed my skills in speed reading and my writing skills have improved dramtically.  Here’s the title of my 201st book!

New interactive image: I recently changed over the installation at Harris Farm Markets in Potts Point to feature a selection of cartons from the Greater Shepparton Region, in Yorta Yorta country. The cartons were collected on a visit to the region for the Shepparton Festival in 2017, where I had the opportunity to visit farmers, and in some cases have a chat. There is now an interactive image at cartonography.com/curate where you can see the cartons' catalogue record and also hear some of the conversations. This 'image map' technique will also be used to provide background for an installation of cartons at Cairns Art Gallery in November, so feedback is greatly appreciated :)

Strong Indigenous women 👣✨❤️
Had the deadliest time with Aunty Bev Briggs and sissy @mssbriggsy at the Indigenous Ceramic Awards in Shep yesterday. To top it all off, hearing cousin @yortayortadorta address the audience so beautifully in language, was inspiring and so very special. A much needed reminder of how important it is to speak our languages every single day. .
