This is Melbourne Museum’s headline exhibition for NAIDOC 2018. Housed in the Birrarung Gallery at the Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre, it throws a spotlight on nine Victorian First Peoples women who have achieved extraordinary things in delivering services to community.

Extensive storytelling sits alongside stunning images of these remarkable women from various sovereign nations. Objects on display include a series of contemporary digging sticks juxtaposed against digging sticks from Museums Victoria’s collection. ‘Because of her, we can!’ also provides valuable contextual information about the important history of NAIDOC.
