Meet truth receiver Shayne
Hi, my name is Shayne Morrall, I am a proud Wotjobaluk man born and living on Wurundjeri Country and I’m a Truth Receiver for the Yoorrook Justice Commission.
I started working at Yoorrook because I believe the truth into what injustices have taken place with Aboriginal people since colonisation needs to be told and recorded in Australia’s history.
Having worked in the corrections system, Koori Family Violence areas and my father being one of the Stolen Generation, I know firsthand in what injustices have taken place with Aboriginal people since colonization and I want to play an active part in sharing these stories.
I have been married for nearly 40 years, have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. I enjoy going to the football watching the Tigers and spending time with my family.
