You’ll find the latest Palm Island Voice here and free to download every fortnight.
The Palm Island Voice is published by the Palm Island Aboriginal Shire Council and is catalogued by the Queensland State Library.
I edited my first issue of the Palm Island Voice in October 2008, there were 20 issues published before then so I have included them here as well – just so the collection is complete!
I work on the Voice with the community and, for many years, with my Koori Mail colleague Alf Wilson who is based in Townsville. I don’t get to Palm Island myself nearly as often as I would like to. The Palm Island Voice on Facebook certainly helps to maintain connections, pick up leads and keep in touch to some extent. The rest of the material comes directly from community organisations and the schools’ contributions.
I’m sure we are all aware of the bad and often inaccurate run Palm Island has had in the media in the past so what is done with the Voice is unashamedly positive and will remain so for as long as I am lucky enough to be involved.
