At the Foundation for the WA Museum, we feel an overwhelming sense of awe and respect for First Nations and their way of life.
Our CEO Jenny Allen feels that, “With the planned opening of the New Museum in late November, and with the Ngalang Koort Boodja Wirn Gallery in pride of place on the ground floor, this will be a wonderful way for Western Australians and the world to have this amazing opportunity for our children and grandchildren to learn and experience the indigenous culture, country and history in our State.”
Chief Executive Officer of Reconciliation Australia, Karen Mundine, said that Australia’s ability to move forward as a nation relies on individuals, organisations and communities coming together in the spirit of reconciliation.
“We all have a role to play when it comes to reconciliation, and in playing our part we collectively build relationships and communities that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories and cultures. When we come together to build mutual respect and understanding, we shape a better future for all Australians.”
