Noongar elder, cultural consultant and public speaker.
Walter McGuire is a well-respected Nyungar man around Perth. As a descendent of several Aboriginal tribal clans of the South West of Western Australia, Walter is a traditional owner of Noongar Boodja, including the Whadjuk lands on which Perth city now stands. Walter conducts most of his Aboriginal cultural awareness activities including Aboriginal tours around iconic city locations.
From childhood, Walter was schooled in Noongar culture, language and customs by his parents and recognised Elders, including those of related tribal groups. In this respect, he shares his culture with deep reverence for his Ancestors, fellow Noongar and First Peoples of Australia and the world over.
