The Peers Project launches NAIDOC week podcast A Yarn with our Elders

Australia’s only BIPOC, female-led podcast agency, The Peers Project have launched a NAIDOC week podcast short-series A Yarn with our Elders.

These yarns, in partnership with Bendigo Bank, and led by their Inclusion Specialist and Munanjali Woman Simone Sexton, are with First Nations Elders about family, future and their lived experience.

Sexton says:

“It is said in our culture that when an Elder passes away we lose an entire library of knowledge and wisdom, the telling of our “Songlines” is transferred verbally by Elders. Podcasting is a modern way of telling and sharing these traditional stories, and a fantastic step forward as we continue to walk together on our journey to reconciliation. As custodians of the oldest continuing culture in the world, the knowledge and wisdom of our Elders is invaluable.”

The four episodes of A Yarn with our Elders are available wherever you get your podcasts.
