Welcome to the Miriam Rose Foundation website. We are a charity founded in 1988 by Miriam Rose Ungunmerr Baumann and a group of supporters who wanted to improve the quality of life for youth in the Nauiyu Community in the Northern Territory.
Through Education, Art, Culture and Opportunity we work to help young indigenous people walk in two worlds:
- their small remote community with its bush tucker, traditional language, cultural roles and rites of passage and Family
- the outside world with cities, theatres, art galleries, skyscrapers, Universities, huge sport stadiums and people from many different places and cultures.
Our logo (top left), designed and painted by our founder herself, shows a hand reaching down to hold, protect and guide the young people. This is how we try to work.
