Boon Wurrung Wathaurong Elder, Uncle Jack Charles, is one of Australia’s most respected and enduring actors.

He co-founded Australia’s first Indigenous theatre group, Nindethana, in 1971 and has appeared in theatre and film across the country.

He is a strong role-model who believes in the importance of connection to culture and he wants stories of resistance and hope to be known in mainstream Australia.

Uncle Jack has recorded a Welcome and Graduation message explaining the significance and context of Indigenous healers to all the Young Doctors.
