Fanny Balbuk Yooreel: life, legacy and emotions

This public symposium focuses on the experiences of Fanny Balbuk as a Whadjuk yorga. Her powerful, emotional story enables contemporary residents of Perth to see the history of their area in fresh ways.

Come and hear presentations and discussions by leading academics as they consider the life, legacy and emotions of Fanny Balbuk Yoreel, arguably the most important Whadjuk woman of the 19th century.

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

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.
