Cheryl Buchanan is a woman from the Guwamu (or Kooma) nation located in southern Queensland. Cheryl is a representative for Northern Basins Aboriginal Nations (NBAN) and in this short interview she briefly discusses growing up on the rivers with her Aunties; the interactions her people had with other Aboriginal Nations, and how these meetings fostered cultural exchange and helped the continuation of their respective cultures; the quality of the water; and how she views the water as a force that brings peace and people together.
Cheryl mentions Warrego (western), Balonne (eastern), Culgoa (southern) as the river boundaries of her peoples' Country.
