Aunty Theresa Walley

Listeners are warned that this podcast features the voice of deceased Ballardong Elder Theresa Walley.
A much loved and respected Elder in Boorloo (Perth), she sadly passed away in July 2021. This interview was recorded with her grandson, Phil Walleystack. It was her wish that her story be preserved and shared. Aunty Theresa was part of the stolen generation - while her story of removal is heartbreaking, her love and commitment to her own children and countless grannies is her lasting legacy.

Ni! means listen was produced by Community Arts Network in partnership with the City of Perth and with support from the ABC.
