The Long Walk celebrating Aboriginal women

Date posted: 27 October 2011

The Long Walk women's luncheon is a popular awareness raising event celebrating the achievement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women. This year, The Long Walk is working with local Aboriginal women to present the women's luncheon in Adelaide for the very first time, on Friday 11 November 2011.

When Michael Long walked to Canberra to get the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people back on the national agenda, he was joined by some remarkable women. One of those was Merryn Apma, who along with non-Aboriginal businesswoman, Sue Davies, initiated the first women's luncheon in 2006.

Celebrated for six years in Melbourne, The Long Walk is introducing this unique event to South Australia. The event brings Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Aboriginal women together to celebrate the role of women in our community, network and have a good time.

The Long Walk will feature special guests; Aboriginal Language Worker, Karina Lester, Indigenous lawyer and NAIDOC Person of the Year 2011, Terri Janke and local singer Sonya Rankine. The event will be emceed by Shelley Ware and Leila Gurruwiwi from Marngrook Footy Show.

The Long Walk Women's Luncheon in Adelaide will be held on Friday 11 October, 2011 at 11.30am for 12pm start (ends 3pm). Tickets are $150.00 (incl. GST) and can be purchased through The Long Walk, see links below.
