Valerie Foster

Valerie Foster is a Ngaanyatjarra Elder, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, from the community of Wanarn in Western Australia. She edited the Ngaanyatjarra Honey Ant Readers 1, 2 and 3 and recorded the audio to accompany the books. Valerie is happy to be involved in the HAR translations because she thinks it is important to preserve traditional languages, both in their written and spoken, forms. She also wants to help children to read books in their own language to keep their pride and knowledge of their language and culture, strong.
