Abstract: Minmaku Palyantja Palya: Value Women's Good Work was a collaborative project between Women in Adult and Vocational Education (WAVE) and Waltja Tjutangku Palya Aboriginal Corporation (Waltja). Waltja is an incorporated not-for-profit community organisation governed by senior Aboriginal women from remote communities across Central Australia. In these communities, and working with and through Waltja, women play a highly significant role in identification of training needs, advocacy for their communities, and facilitation of education and training. The main focus of this project has been the recognition, acknowledgement and promotion of senior Aboriginal women who have been instrumental in the development of children's services and youth programs on their remote communities in Central Australia. The project also sought to build relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous women, along with continued good working relationships, from the two organisations involved - WAVE and Waltja. This set of resources comprises two conference presentations, a speech and a peer reviewed journal article.
