This project has been member driven since it's inception. Paying respect to those who have walked this land before us is important to the whole community. The records of unmarked graves in the Coolgardie Cemetery have been isolated. We are researching each of these entries to identify those of Aboriginals.
Thanks to funding from National Indigenous Australians Agency, and in consultation with the local Aboriginal community we will place markers on the graves identified.
This project is being lead by Rose Mitchell shown in this photo of the first day of the project together with Allison and Nathan Dimer. Rose and Nathan will be at the Judumul home base each Tuesday between 9am and 12noon. If you want to participate in this project we in invite you to either drop in on Tuesday or contact Rose on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Over sixty plaques can be seen across all areas of the Coolgardie Cemetery.
