Language and Law feature at inaugural The Long Walk Women's Luncheon in Adelaide

The Long Walk is excited to be working with local Aboriginal women to present The Long Walk Women's Luncheon in Adelaide for the very first time on Friday 11 November, 2011.

A popular awareness raising event, The Long Walk Women's Luncheon is a celebration of the achievement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.

When Michael Long walked to Canberra to get the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people back on the national agenda, he was joined by some remarkable women. One of those was Merryn Apma, who along with non-Aboriginal businesswoman, Sue Davies, initiated the first women’s luncheon in 2006.

Celebrated for six years in Melbourne, The Long Walk is excited to introduce this unique event to South Australia. The event brings Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Aboriginal women together to celebrate the role of women in our community, network and have a good time.
The Long Walk Women’s luncheon features great entertainment and shares the stories of inspiring guest speakers

The Long Walk is very pleased to feature our special guests Aboriginal Language Worker, Karina Lester, Indigenous lawyer and NAIDOC Person of the Year 2011, Terri Janke and local singer Sonya Rankine. The event will be MC’d by Shelley Ware and Leila Gurruwiwi from Marngrook Footy Show.
