How to heal the wounds of Rottnest Island?
Steps are being taken to commemorate the Aboriginal men and boys buried on Rottnest Island with the development of a cultural authority process.
The Wadjemup Project – recognising the Noongar name for Rottnest – will see engagement with other Noongar and Aboriginal people in WA to determine how best to commemorate those who died on the island and the use of the old prison building.
Whadjuk Elders Farley Garrett and Neville Collard are leading the discussions.
Mr Collard told Gareth Parker on Mornings the project is an important step forward.
