We are very excited to introduce to you some of our new staff members over the next few editions of NACC Notes. This month, meet Cynthia, NACC’s new Aboriginal Custodianship Project Officer!
Cynthia Indich is a Yamaji-Noongar woman, hailing from Mullewa. This makes the Northern Agricultural Region a special place for Cynthia, and she says she loves seeing the region being cared for, in order for a better future.
One of the biggest drivers in Cynthia’s journey into the natural resource management industry has been helping Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal people to gain a better understanding of each other while working together to ensure our environment is thriving now, and long into the future.
“It’s great seeing so many goals being achieved in taking care of the land and sea,” said Cynthia.
“At the moment my work revolves around National Reconciliation Week. Under this year’s theme of Be Brave, Make Change, the NACC team will be taking part in an Aboriginal Art Therapy workshop this month which I’m really looking forward to!”
Readers can expect to see Cynthia supporting the Midwest Aboriginal Ranger Program (MARP) and NACC’s Reconciliation Action Plan. She will also be engaging with other services to support upcoming activities, workshops, and events.
“I’m looking forward to supporting the MARP Program in particular, and achieving goals within this space.”
