Yulendj Group

Yulendj is a Kulin word for 'knowledge and intelligence'. It is the name that members of the Bunjilaka Community Reference Group chose to describe their role in the First Peoples exhibition.

Yulendj comprises a group of 16 respected community members and Elders from across Victoria. They have generously shared their knowledge and experience to shape this exhibition into one that represents the diversity, history and pride of Koorie peoples.

"What the group gives the project is vital cultural leadership, advocacy and support," says Caroline Martin, Bunjilaka Manager and Chairperson of Yulendj. "We couldn't create this exhibition without the group. They are consultants, they are cultural authorities, they are co-curators with the museum team."
