Aunty Lorraine Darcy Peeters, Marumali Healing founder and member of the Stolen generations, accepted the Lifetime Achievement Award for Healing the Stolen Generations at the 18th Deadlys on 25 September 2012 at the Sydney Opera House.
Presented by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner Mick Gooda and Chair of the Healing Foundation Florence Onus, Aunty Lorraine's lifetime work was honoured in front of a capacity crowd and her family.
Aunty Lorraine is well known among the Stolen generations as the creative and spiritual force behind the Marumali journey of healing - a program that trains Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander counsellors to support survivors to heal from the trauma they suffered from removal.
Aunty Lorraine is a member of the Stolen generations and the Marumali journey of healing is founded upon her own healing journey. The program is now in its 11th year of successful operation and in this time has delivered more than 140 workshops to over 2000 participants.
