World Indigenous Cancer Conference

Tomorrow is the start of the World Indigenous Cancer Conference, and there is a huge turnout for it.

Delegates have come from across the world to hear the latest, share stories and to help Indigenous Peoples.

Many people representing their Communities are coming and they will be able to join in the talks, and share at the yarning circle. I am going to it, and of course I will be sharing some of the stories and other highlights of the event.
