Aunty Rhonda Collard-Spratt & Jacki Ferro

Luke and Susie got to talk to co-authors Aunty Rhonda Collard-Spratt & Jacki Ferro about their new inspired children’s book, Grandfather Emu.

Rhonda Collard-Spratt is a proud Yamatji-Noongar Elder who is a survivor of the Stolen Generations. A talented storyteller and artist, Aunty Rhonda wants Grandfather Emu to bring joy and hope to all children, to strengthen our connection with this sacred land and its animals, and to keep the lore and languages of our First Nations people alive.

Jacki Ferro specialises in memoir writing and runs her own business Raw Memoirs. Jacki co-wrote Aunty Rhonda’s life story, Alice’s Daughter: Lost Mission Child.
