About Our Theme – Ancestor’s Footsteps, Young Voices, Empowering Futures:

The theme for the 2024 Koorie Youth Summit, Ancestor’s Footsteps, Young Voices, Empowering Futures, combines the notions of following our Ancestor’s footsteps, paying homage to all of those that have come before us and their advocacy for the rights and representation of future generations. To us, as young, proud Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people now using our voices to do the same, we look to shape and determine where to next for us as well as what we want for our mobs moving forward. We will listen, heal, share, and celebrate each other so that we can empower each other into the future.
