Miliwanga Wurrben is a unique human, filled with joy and compassion, who walks between the Indigenous and Western worlds with an ease and grace that is rarely seen. An elder and law woman of the Mirratja clan of the Rembarrnga people from Central Arnhem Land, she is a traditional knowledge holder, healer, artist, weaver, educator and cultural ambassador who has represented her Indigenous people on the world stage, connecting Aboriginal people around the country with their cultural roots.
She will be facilitating some beautiful opportunities to connect, in a profound way, with Indigenous Australian Rembarrnga culture in a deeply authentic manner.
Raised in Central Arnhem Land in her people’s traditional ways, Miliwanga initially knew no other education system. Later she studied English and became a school teacher, affording her the skills to share culture and build bridges in a cross-cultural way.
She speaks five traditional languages and is a living treasure trove of cultural knowledge that is slowly disappearing, together with the law people that hold that knowledge.
Moreover, she has a strong positive vision for healing and moving forward towards universal harmony and balance, within ourselves, between all people and with the living world around us.
