Susan Oakley

Posted: July 11th, 2013

Susan is a Malgana woman who is very active in the Carnarvon community. She is the acting Chair of the Carnarvon Aboriginal Congress, a body set up to address the needs of the community, and is part of the Carnarvon Medical Service Aboriginal Corporation. She also involves herself  in the local community by participating as an umpire for local sports teams.

Country means everything to Susan. She wants Aboriginal people to be able to be free on Country, to hunt and fish and look after the land and the environment. This and her desire for justice for Aboriginal people motivates her native title work with YMAC.
