Share sto­ries of har­mony and heritage

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Letters - Cr Felic­ity Haynes, Os­ming­ton

Those of you who fol­low the coun­cil’s ac­tiv­i­ties will ap­pre­ci­ate the moves be­ing made to in­clude in­dige­nous con­sul­ta­tion in de­ci­sion-mak­ing.

How­ever, there is a new Facebook page which may be of gen­eral in­ter­est be­cause it tells sto­ries of set­tle­ment in Mar­garet River in which in­dige­nous and white fam­i­lies worked co-op­er­a­tively and in har­mony to­gether.

The page is called Spirit of Place Mar­garet River and can be found on Facebook.

This effort shows com­mend­able re­spect for the heritage, in­clud­ing care for the en­vi­ron­ment.

The page would wel­come fur­ther in­for­ma­tion and com­ments.
