Bendigo Bank partners with The Peers Project for A Yarn with our Elders

Bendigo Bank has partnered with The Peers Project to launch the NAIDOC week podcast short series A Yarn with our Elders.

The podcast takes listeners on a journey into the world, history and stories of First Nations people to deepen their knowledge of the world’s oldest living culture. 

The podcast is led by Bendigo Bank Inclusion Specialist and Munanjali Woman, Simone Sexton as she has conversations with First Nations Elders about family, future and their lived experience. 

“It is said in our culture that when an Elder passes away we lose an entire library of knowledge and wisdom, the telling of our ‘Songlines’ is transferred verbally by Elders,” Sexton said.

“Podcasting is a modern way of telling and sharing these traditional stories, and a fantastic step forward as we continue to walk together on our journey to reconciliation.”

“As custodians of the oldest continuing culture in the world, the knowledge and wisdom of our Elders is invaluable.”

Michelle Akhidenor, Chief Executive Officer of The Peers Project said, “These are the kinds of conversations we dream of creating at The Peers Project, they matter to the audience and they make an impact.”

“Bendigo Bank is focused on providing opportunities and platforms to further our collective understanding and connectivity to First Nations communities and is an incredibly valued partner of The Peers Project, whose mission is to raise diverse voices and stories.”

“We’re thrilled and honoured to bring this podcast project to life on behalf of Bendigo Bank.”

A Yarn with our Elders launches today, July 3, 2023, with all four episodes of the short series.
