BECAUSE OF HER, WE CAN

Because of Her, We Can is a series of stories collected for NAIDOC Week 2018. They’re inspired by the NAIDOC 2018 theme which celebrates the role that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have played – and continue to play – at community, local, state and national levels.

The collection of this story was funded by the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority.

This series also included stories from Nina Boydell, Brianna Ozies, Gina Williams and Joan Foley.


Tim Muirhead has worked extensively with Aboriginal communities. He currently specialises in building trust and collaboration between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in workplaces and communities. Here, he shares his story about a close friend of his, and the impact she had on his life.
