It was a great day today going out to Raukkan community meeting everyone and listen to all the story about Raukkan community and it history pass.

The most amazing think of been out their at Raukkan community was to see and meet in person to honor who pass way for all the amazing think he has done in he life Davis Unaipon.

David Unaipon was a well-known Indigenous Australian of the Ngarrindjeri people, a preacher, inventor and writer. Unaipon’s contribution to Australian society helped to break many Indigenous Australian stereotypes, and he is featured on the Australian $50 note in commemoration.

The one think I always learn from David Unaipon was his saying “As a full blood member of my race I think I may be the first – but I hope not to be the last to produce an enduring record of our customs, belief and imagining.”
