Doolann Leisha Eatts
Aunty Doolann Leisha Eatts is a Ballardong woman. She grew up in the south-west, where she says, she was part of two worlds. Aunty Doolann tells stories of her life in the bush. How she made lanterns with her siblings from Sunshine Milk tins and salvaged Archie comics from the tip. She recounts the story from her grandmother of when the Europeans arrived on the Swan River. How they brought these strange and frightening looking creatures. When they came galloping, white men on their backs, down to Doolann’s grandmother’s camp, she knew, ‘they were caught between two cultures now’.
