NAIDOC - Candid Conversations
In the lead up to the NSW Local Government Elections on 4 September 2021, we're seeing more Aboriginal men and women step into politics. Perhaps spurred on by the surge of Aboriginal people stepping up to run for office in the recent WA State Election, Indigenous people are breaking down barriers and running for office. In this Candid Conversation we hear from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Councillors and Candidates based in NSW including: Clr Dominic Wy Kanak of Waverley Council who is one of the longest serving Councillors in Australia; Clr Kodi Brady of Warrumbungle Shire Council who also serves on an Aboriginal Land Council; and Mayoral Candidate Yvonne Weldon who is also CEO of Metropolitan Aboriginal Land Council in Sydney.
