Flags flying at half mast to commemorate the funeral of Elder Doolann-Leisha Eatts
The City of Stirling will be flying its flags at half-mast today to commemorate the funeral of Wadjak/Ballardong Elder Doolann-Leisha Eatts.
Maam-yok (Aunty) Doolann-Leisha was a proud Wadjak/Ballardong Elder who lived a full life and was a tremendous asset to the community.
Doolann-Leisha spent many years striving to improve outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by working with both State and Local Government on programs to support Aboriginal young people and families. Doolann-Leisha played a pivotal role in supporting the City’s reconciliation efforts and was a member of the Wadjak Elders group that led the City to its first Reconciliation Action Plan.
Doolann-Leisha’s contributions to the City of Stirling and our community will always be remembered. We will honour those contributions through our commitment to an inclusive community where the value and strength of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures are recognised and celebrated, and a future where everyone is empowered with equal opportunities.
This portrait of Doolann-Leisha in the ‘Shaping the Future’ mural is located on Yirrigan Drive in Mirrabooka.
