The Yiriman Women are a group from 4 language groups in the West Kimberley region. Their recently developed Bush Knowledge and Business Development Plan has brought together in a very unique way the ability to form social enterprises with cultural knowledge. They are very committed to working alongside mainstream health service providers to provide educational workshops around Aboriginal people’s needs and cultural priorities for families facing life limiting illness or palliative care.
