Heritage Talk on Yarramundi/Maria Locke by Karen Smith

Maria Locke is a significant figure in Australian history, yet not as well-known as she deserves to be. The daughter of Yarramundi, chief of the Richmond tribes, Maria went on to have notable achievements in education, the first legally recognised marriage between an Aboriginal person and a settler,

Karen Smith has been the Education Officer at the Aboriginal Heritage Office since 2011 and has shared her knowledge and experience of the local Aboriginal history and culture with thousands of local residents, students and schools. She leads guided walks and gives presentations throughout the partner Councils in northern Sydney.

Karen is from the Buruberongal clan of the Hawkesbury (Derrubin) area and her family has been living in the Manly area for many years.

Come along for an inspiring evening as Karen guides us into the past through a remarkable life story.
