"The elders come and we sit around and have a yarn. We sit around and tell each other stories."
Jayarna is Indigenous. As a child, her father left. As a result, she became disconnected from her culture.
Now, as an adult, she and her father have rebuilt a relationship. She has reconnected with her Aboriginal culture, which she describes as being a relationship.
“It’s like something’s missing and next minute you don’t feel that anymore. And something’s filled it.”
This is a story to warm you in a time when the world seems bleak. It’s about valuing culture and family. It’s about developing your own sense of spirituality.
It’s a story from an inspirational and humble woman. It was an honour to listen to her.
