Veronica Brodie is an Aboriginal woman of Ngarrindjeri-Kaurna descent. She grew up at Raukkan near Victor Harbor and until the mid-sixties lived under the Aborigines Protection Board. Later, after training as a nurse, marrying, having five children and recovering from alcoholism, Veronica Brodie was involved in the Hindmarsh Island Bridge affair, on the side of the Ngarrindjeri women who knew of the secret women’s business and sought to stop the construction of the bridge. Veronica Brodie is now a respected Aboriginal elder who works to help her people remember and value their culture and traditions. This is her story.
