> Alick Jackomos > Alick JackomosAlick Jackomos, of Greek heritage, was married to Merle Morgan from Cummeragunja and was very much a part of the Melbourne-based Koorie community.From his early life growing up in Collingwood, as a soldier in the AIF during World War II, and as a member of the Jimmy Sharman boxing troupe, Alick Jackomos became friendly with many Aboriginal people all over the country.He worked closely with Pastor Doug Nicholls and was a welfare officer at the Lake Tyers Aboriginal Reserve.In 1964 Jackomos became the Victorian state secretary of the Federal Council for the Advancement of Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders (FCAATSI), and was responsible for bringing to the Federal Conference the concerns of Victorian Aboriginal people.He held this position until 1967.Alick Jackomos was instrumental in organising the first Victoria-wide meetings of Koorie people in the mid 1960s, and in encouraging and supporting Aboriginal attendance at the annual conferences.Alick Jackomos is remembered by many for his ability to bring people together.After the tensions and politics during the day at the annual FCAATSI conferences in Canberra, Alick hosted concerts on Easter Saturday night where people would forget their differences.
