NAIDOC WEEK - Meet Rhi!

By WAGEC

Published on November 11, 2020

Introduce yourself, who are you and how did you become involved with WAGEC?

Hi my name is Rhiannon Amelia Griffiths but my Instagram handle is rhi_amelia. I was very fortunate to be asked to do a commission piece for the WAGEC Redfern office.

What does this years theme of NAIDOC Week 'Always Was, Always Will Be' mean to you?

The statement Always Was Always Will Be, to me means: Our people always were and always will be the rightful owners of this land.

What is something the WAGEC community can do to this NAIDOC Week and even beyond this week in their everyday life to stand in solidarity with this year’s theme?

 The WAGEC community can take part in community initiatives to promote Indigenous culture and awareness.

Do you have a special story or woman’s story you would like to share that has inspired you?

My Great Grandmother Brenda Benge was a strong Kamilaroi woman who mothered 14 children and lived till the ripe old age of 97.
