Alice Springs Yarn Up

The Alice Springs Yarn Up was held 16-18 September at the Institute for Aboriginal Development where we spoke with Denis Braun about his army reserve service. We were also fortunate to speak with Geoff Shaw, about his Vietnam service and also his work for recognition and services for town camps and his central involvement in forming the Tangentyere Council.
