A Passionate Life. Her land, her voice: the extraordinary Fanny Balbuk Yooreel

On the 110th anniversary of her death, this presentation explores the extraordinary life of Fanny Balbuk Yoreel and her deep emotional commitment to her land and people, as she experienced early colonisation first hand.

This event focuses on lifting the recognition of arguably Perth’s most important Whadjuk woman.

Explore other Fanny Balbuk Yooreel events – an exhibition of quilts, a guided walk and symposium.

These events are guided by Noongar women and their extended families in partnership with the National Trust of Western Australia, City of Perth, ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions and Department of Aboriginal Affairs. Supported by Lotterywest.
