Emily Wurramara – Making time for patience and holding community Rich Blak Women

    • Society & Culture

Emily is a Warnindhilyagwa woman originating from Groote Eylandt in the Gulf of
Carpentaria, Northern Territory. She’s an AIR award-winning and ARIA-nominated
artist, and seasoned performer having held the stage at major festivals and
global events including Woodford Folk Festival, Bluesfest, TEDX Sydney, GARMA,
Port Fairy Folk Festival, BIGSOUND and International Folk Alliance showcases,
along with shows tours across Australia, Canada, the US, Orleans, Sweden, and
France.

In this beautifully calm episode, Emily yarns about her rituals and times of patience
that keep her grounded while on tour, financial wellness as a way to feel safe
and secure and held by community, investing in time and things that bring long
term joy and create memories, and we really go deep on the essence of this
podcast and what wealth and richness mean from her perspective.

Rich Blak Women is a podcast from national Indigenous not-for-profit First Nations
Foundation, following stories of culture, strength, challenge, and resilience
from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women – rich in culture, value, and
mindset.

Conversations aim to deepen awareness about the unique economic inequities’ First Nations
women face, investigate success and connection to culture, empower financial
wellbeing through shared experiences and learnings, and build community and
allies.

The First Nations line-up of guests in the new season include Guyala Bayles (model,
actor, activist), Gill Mailman (telecommunications leader), Senator Dorinda Cox
(WA Greens), Marcella Ketchell (GBH Torres Strait Sea & Land Council),
Shantelle Thompson OAM (Kiilalaana Foundation founder and Jiu Jitsu world
champion), Shanell Dargan (boxer and singer), Donnell Wallam (Australian
netballer), Celeste Carnegie, (Community Programs & Engagement at
Indigitek), and Nornie Bero (Mabu Mabu restaurant owner).

Host, Larisha Jerome, is a proud Jarowair, Wakka Wakka & Wulli Wulli woman who
grew up on Darug Country in Western Sydney and has an extensive background in
banking, women’s health, government, and community services. She leads the
Foundation’s Women’s Financial Wellness work addressing the economic injustice
First Nations people face and empowering women to achieve full financial
wellness and independence.
