Glenorchy Reconciliation Group – TAS
Glenorchy Reconciliation Group (GRG) brings together Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people to build understanding and respect for cultural heritage. Its projects include weed removal in Berriedale, protection of Aboriginal heritage, revegetation with local plants and community education. The Group’s current project involves the protection and rehabilitation of an important midden on the Derwent River foreshore at Little Frying Pan Island, near to where a number of elders have lived. The group has also been installing commemorative and educational materials at the site. GRG was established by Aunty Ida West, an important elder from Flinders Island widely recognised for her pursuit of social change for Tasmania’s Aboriginal people.
