Our elders, our stories, our culture
Ash, Susan (2008) Our elders, our stories, our culture. Nutrition & Dietetics, 65(4), pp. 297-299.
Story telling and interviewing are deeply embedded in our professional culture; however, stories of dietetics and our professional pioneers are less common. The annual Lecture of Honour at our national conference has enabled us to honour our tribal elders by telling their stories. Traditionally, tribal elders are story tellers and tradition bearers. An Aboriginal elder, Francis Firebrace1 states that 'when you tell stories from the heart, you connect with the audience—you have to live it in your mind, the story has to become part of you'. Telling our stories connects and heals us and so here I honour Lucy Hamilton Reid by telling her story.
