Award for Excellence for Hubert ‘Laddie’ Timbery
In December 2019, the Aboriginal Culture, Heritage & Arts Association (ACHAA) presented an award for excellence to Hubert ‘Laddie’ Timbery (1924-2019) for outstanding contribution to Aboriginal arts, culture and heritage in New South Wales.
It was with sadness that we marked the passing of Uncle Laddie Timbery on 23 July 2019.
Laddie Timbery, a Bidjigal elder, had been on site at the Museum since it opened 1988. His gallery, Laddie Timbery's Aboriginal arts and crafts, located in the Museum grounds, has been popular over the years selling an array of authentic art and artefacts. Providing a tangible link with Aboriginal culture for schools throughout NSW, locals and tourists, engaging everyone with a wonderful sense of humour and educating younger generations with a history that has often been forgotten.
