Punmu Community Feedback
In July, the women’s leadership program participants went to Punmu during the KJ board meeting week.
This was an opportunity for three women, Annabelle Landy, Vivienne Landy and Louise Jeffries, to share with the community what the women’s leadership program is all about. The women targeted different audiences in the community:
- Punmu and Kunawarritji ranger teams
- Rawa high school students
- KJ Board of directors
- Punmu community
Giving feedback to Martu in community is a very important part of the leadership program. The participants have emphasised that they have to share what they are learning with others in the community.
“This is how you do it for your community and for your people and we want to do it the right way. Taking feedback back is important to me and it makes me happy. What I learn, I take it back to my family, I tell them. They are part of it they want to know what is happening too because they ask questions and we have to give that wangka (learning) back to them.” – Annabelle Landy
The women shaped and owned the messages they were sharing and delivered their presentations in language. It’s no surprise that the presentations were very well received in the community. On this occasion over 50 people turned up to hear from the women and men involved in the Martu Leadership program.
