Margaret Heffernan

Gathering Sticks


Margaret Heffernan's desire, in telling this story has been to pass on to her children and future generations of her family, the story of her life, a life in transition from traditional culture to a very different world that is still unfolding. "I belong here and thankful for everything in my life"

Margaret’s story had begun over 30 years ago. From her childhood Margie was inspired in her culture by the women’s circles and the strong men in her family.

At Night she would sneak her bedding close to the fire and listen to the family stories.
