Siteworks Capsule Talks: Aunty Loretta Parsley and Kirli Saunders

Celebrating the rematriation of culture, Yuin Walbunja Elder Aunty Lorretta Parsley and Gunai artist Kirli Saunders led an intensive on-Country residency for women on Yuin lands at Bundanon in September 2022. Honouring the process of possum skin cloak making, the workshop invited 15 First Nations women to create a community cloak.

This session shares stories from the Possum Skin Cloak Project and celebrates the strength and resilience of First Nations women on Yuin lands.
