Our Way

Added by Channel 31 Melbourne

Description Leonie Palmer (Kngwarraye) shares her amazing story with Children's Ground and Project 1 Million.

DONATE to help us cut through the echo chamber and take Leonie's story into the newsfeeds of Australians from all walks of life: https://chuffed.org/fundraiser/I-Am-A...

Leonie grew up in Alice Springs, but her spirit is from Corkwood Bore. She has five children, 28 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren - and more on the way! Education for children starts at home, and for these children, their home ground is their classroom.

Leonie hopes to see a school set up on her home ground to teach the next generation in a traditional way. Growing on the land, learning off the land, speaking their own strong language.

"My name is Leonie, I am an Arrernte woman, my skin name is Kngwarraye, and I'm proud to be a Australian Aboriginal woman."
