Marlisa Brown National Aboriginal Day 2016

What does National Aboriginal Day mean to you?

"To me, celebrating Aboriginal Day means remembering our history and above all celebrating our resilience. We have unqiue cultures, traditions and languages that have thrived generations. Although some may have been lost as a result of colonial and post-colonial affects, such as systematic oppression, generational trauma, lateral violence etc. I still see our people striving to love and support one another  - that's powerful.

As a Gwich’in woman I feel empowered by my identity, my culture and my people. To have come from such resilient people is why I consistently try to better myself for the next generation to come and pass on the resilience – it is my owing to honour those that come before me" - Marlisa Brown

 

 

"This submission is pretty special to me, Marlisa is my little sister. I couldn't be more proud to have a sister like her. We have lived in different parts of the country all our lives. Marlisa is sweet, smart and has a really strong head on her shoulders. She's absolutely gorgeous, but her heart is pure gold. One of my goals in life is to be able to spend more time with all of my siblings. Family is always important." - Alexandra Jarrett Social Media Trailblazer
