Catching up with Auntie Minnie for a yarn on a warm summer afternoon at Kupidabin Wilderness with Maureen Pickstone is the reason why the journey of ‘7 Lyell Court’ is imperative to all cultures and our elders.

As a founding member THE NUNGEENA WOMEN’S CORPORATION, incorporated in 1992 nestled under Mt Beerwah at the Glasshouse Mountains her vision has helped generations of women. As an artist with long standing community involvement including the Winton Film Festival, life is busy as an elder and ‘custodian of knowledge’ of the Koa people of South East Queensland.

I look forward to her upcoming publication THE BOOK OF “YAHI”, ALCHERINGA (or Dreaming) was the “golden age” when the first ancestors were created.

The NADOC theme for 2022 is ‘Get up! Stand up! Show up,’ and we will be highlighting Auntie Minnie’s address, ‘The trail of Dreams’ to the UNITED NATIONS in 2009. Please come and join us at Kupidabin Wilderness on Saturday 9th July. Contact Maureen on 0492092741, Facebook or website.
