Lithgow’s Own Advocates for First Nation’s Voice

By Lithgow City Council
Posted: 13 Jul 2021
NAIDOC Week is a time of year when we especially celebrate our ongoing relationship with First Nation’s people of our region.

One such local person is Bridget Cama. An advocate, lawyer, musician, and proud Wiradjuri and Pasifika woman, Bridget recently featured on ABC Radio to share her work as co-chair of the Uluru Youth Dialogue.

You can hear Bridget’s interview here

Although Bridget has relocated from Lithgow to pursue her career as a lawyer, her ties to Wiradjuri country are strong and her commitment to the Lithgow region is ongoing. Bridget regularly returns to Lithgow to be with family, to mentor young Indigenous youth and to perform her music.

Recently Bridget, along with young Wiradjuri woman Brydie Zorz, addressed Lithgow City Council, explaining the reforms called for by the Uluru Statement from the Heart, encouraging Council to respond to the invitation from First Nations peoples in 2017 and inviting Council to work closely with First Nations people in our community for the benefit of all.

Council supported the Uluru Statement and made a submission to that effect which you can read here.

Lithgow City Council is committed to working closely with all sectors of our local community. If you would like to be a part of that process, please contact our Community Development Team on 6354 9999.
