KULLARRI NAIDOC 2017 PATRON

Junie Djiagween

Junie is a traditional owner of Yawuru country and was born in Broome in the 1950’s. Junie is part of a family that has a rich cultural connection to the area.

At 17 she first worked as a nurse at the Native hospital in Broome before working at the Derby hospital.

She is an advocate in reviving the spiritual connectedness within Yawuru land, wanting Yawuru culture to be strong and to see all people living in harmony with respect shown to each other, just like it used to be.

Junie, like many, has seen the devastating impacts of alcohol and drugs on culture, family harmony and community safety.

Junie is a current board member of Milliya Rumurra. She provides a key role in welcoming and supporting people who come to Milliya Rumurra for alcohol and drug treatment. This is important when people come from other areas of the Kimberley where they are out of country.  Junie gets satisfaction seeing people’s health and spirit getting strong again when there is no alcohol and drugs around.
