Teela Reid will be our speaker for the postponed NAIDOC week meeting. This meeting will be on 8th November as Teela is not available on 15th and the committee felt it was worth moving the meeting for this opportunity.Teela Reid is a proud Wiradjuri and Wailwan woman, a former teacher now criminal defence lawyer and most recently an award-winning junior fiction writer. Teela is a passionate advocate for enshrining a First Nations Voice to Parliament in the Constitution and a Makarrata commission to enable Treaty and Truth-telling. She was a working group leader on section 51 (xxvi), the Race Power, in the constitutional dialogue process that underpinned the Uluru Statement From The Heart; an invitation issued to the Australian people on 26th May 2017. Teela also appeared on ABC programs The Drum, 7.30 and Q&A, and has an active presence on Twitter (@teelareid) and is the co-creator of the Instagram page blackfulla_bookclub, a platform that honours First Nations Ancestors as the original storytellers.
