Listen to your Elders: Aunty Elizabeth Morgan Hoffman (Yorta Yorta) and Uncle Colin Walker (Yorta Yorta)

That’s an old tradition that we’ve all grown up with.
Listen to your Elders. Respect your Elders.

Aunty Iris Lovett Gardiner, Gunditjmara, 2003.

The Listen to your Elders exhibition features oral history recordings collected from the 1980s through to September 2018 by the Koorie Heritage Trust. These recordings share experiences and knowledge of our Koorie Elders and explore the very significant role Elders hold in the Victorian Koorie community.

The recordings were launched as part of the Victorian Seniors Festival Celebration Day in October 2016.


The recordings are made possible with the generous support of the Victorian Seniors Festival, the Pratt Foundation, and the Office of Aboriginal Affairs Victoria.
