Bukal

Bukal is Henrietta’s language name and it connects her to country, to the black lawyer vine that spreads across the rainforest that is used for so many purposes. When the vine is young it can be trained and appear very elegant. Her story is special and unique, with pride in the local and the global. It is a story that will inspire, entertain and educate. Henrietta Marrie (nee Fourmile) is a traditional owner and Elder of Cairns and is a powerful inspiration for young women, particularly young indigenous women. Henrietta received a 2014, 100 Women of Influence Award for her work in Public Policy at the United Nations University. Henrietta is focused on the promotion of culture, particularly supporting young women to aspire to greater heights.

Australia’s very first Indigenous member of the United Nations and the grand-daughter of the King of Cairns; ‘BUKAL’ is the extraordinary journey of one woman’s life that follows Henrietta Fourmile’s incredible strength and determination from the very quaint and simple shores of Aboriginal mission Yarrabah in North Queensland all the way to the world stage of Geneva, Canada and the U.S. where she impacted global Indigenous laws and legislations in the areas of Copyright, Ownership, Bio-diversity and Intellectual Property. This is a world exclusive, JUTE Theatre Company production in association with CQUniversity and presented during CIAF 2018.
