Blackfella Way Wellbeing Centre
Posted on: Sun 12 Sep 2021
Blackfella Way Wellbeing Centre is the brainchild of Kaurna, Narungga and Ngarrindjeri Elder Aunty Heather Aguis, and aims to fill the gaps in the health system to deliver respectful, culturally-appropriate, and holistic services.
The centre is launching with the help of proud Kokatha, Narungga person Aunty Eunice Bartlett and Kokatha, Kaurna and Narungga Elder Aunty Alma Weetra, Rebecca Aguis and filmmaker and Aboriginal rights campaigner Nadine Schoen.
The centre has been a long-time dream of Aunty Heather Aguis and with the launch underway, she speaks about how the centre began, the importance of strong relationships, the need for culturally-appropriate, holistic services, and what the centre will bring to the community.
An excerpt of this segment was first aired on Radio Adelaide’s Breakfast show on Thursday, September 9.
