Veronica Lynch Kngwarraye is a descendant of the Arrernte Tribe. Her homeland is Apmwerre (Black Tank) which is situated 75kms North East of Alice Springs on the Arltunga Tourist Drive. Veronica has worked in various organisations around Alice Springs, as an ACW (Aboriginal Community Officer) with the NT Families & Children, Congress Family Partnership Program (ACW), CAALAS receptionist, Tangentyere Council Tenancy Officer and a Library Officer with Charles Darwin Uni. She has been on various Councils as a Board member representing her people in the Alice Springs Region. In the last ten years Veronica has focused on her family’s homeland, teaching the younger generation and getting them involved in cultural life, showing them bush tucker and bush medicine, tracking native animals, telling them dreamtime stories, dot painting and dancing. Veronica has just completed a Cert IV TAE Assessment and Training through Batchelor College and a Cert IV in Business (Governance) and hopes to use these skills to support and train groups in the future to help them achieve their goals. Veronica says, "I like living on my homeland and teaching our young people the knowledge and skills that I have achieved and hope to be able to help others in our community and other surrounding communities get involved in programs and training."
