Episode 18: COVID-19 and Aboriginal communities. Mike Nolan from Wellington Local Aboriginal Land Council on community uncertainty around food, transport, and what lockdown really means

Welcome back to “A Cuppa and A Yarn” brought to you by the New South Wales Aboriginal Land Council.

The small community of Wellington lies about 50 kilometres from the regional city of Dubbo in central west NSW and is also home to the discreet Aboriginal community of Nanima.

Nanima was the first inland Aboriginal mission and is Australia’s longest continually operating reserve.

This episode, host Michelle Aleksandrovics-Lovegrove speaks with Mike Nolan, the CEO of the Wellington Local Aboriginal Land Council about pressing issues of transporting Elders to and from Nanima, food insecurity and where to isolate.
