My name is Olman Walley and I am a Wilman, Balardong, Binjareb, Wadjuk Nyoongar. I was raised in the Wilman (Wheatbelt) region and was taught Noongar culture by my family and elders. My Nyoongar name is Chitty Chitty (Willy Wagtail) and I love to share our stories, history, music, dance and knowledge of our wonderful ancient culture.
