In my own skin
 
Elliana Lawford

As a journalist, Elli is used to speaking in front of people about all manner of things, but not so often about herself. You'll learn about external and internal structures of Aboriginal identity, and what they might have to do with tan-in-a-can.

 

Elliana is a proud Wiradjuri and Anaiwan woman hailing from New South Wales. She moved to Darwin in 2015 to work for the ABC. When she's not filing news, she's a passionate advocate for social justice, Indigenous rights and Darwin's various laksa vendors.

 

This story was told at Darwin Entertainment Centre on 21 May 2016 for Garrmalang Festival.
