First Nations storytelling

Join First Nations storytellers for relaxed sharing of stories from the world’s longest continuous culture.

Saturday 28 November 2020 - Maroochy

Songwoman Maroochy is the Songwoman & Law-woman of the Turrbal People – the original inhabitants of Brisbane.

She is a direct descendant of Daki Yakka – Chief of the Old Brisbane tribe.

Songwoman Maroochy has a long and successful history in the performing arts and was the first Indigenous Australian to perform on the Australian operatic stage. She is also Australia’s first Aboriginal Dramatic Arts graduate and, in 1993, became the first Australian to perform at the United Nations in New York in honour of the International Year for the World’s Indigenous Peoples.

She has received many awards (both in Australia and overseas), including an Honorary Senior Fellowship of the University of the Sunshine Coast in 2000 for her outstanding and sustained contributions to the community.
