Save Wednesday 9 September 2020 from 6-8pm in your diary for The University of Melbourne's FREE event, the Dungala Kaiela Oration with Dr Lois Peeler AM. Book yourself a place at the table by registering for this online event.

Dr Peeler, a proud Yorta Yorta woman, will deliver the Dungala Kaiela Oration. She's the Executive Director/Principal of Australia's only Aboriginal girls' boarding school, Worawa Aboriginal College. This is an annual event that examines culture, climate change, economics and regional development, legal issues, health and society. It also celebrates Aboriginal cultural identity, creates a shared vision for the people of the greater Goulburn Murray region, and builds bridges to promote Aboriginal social and economic development. Dr Peeler will be joined by Professor Deborah Cheetham AO and Dr Lou Bennett AM for a panel discussion.

It's an event where you can learn more about our First Nations People through Dr Peeler who has had a diverse public career, holding senior positions in the community and public sectors, and a lot of life experience under her belt. She was the first Aboriginal model and first Aboriginal person to work in television. It may surprise you to know she was a member of The Sapphires (as per celebrated award-winning movie of the same name) and toured Vietnam at the height of the Vietnam War.
