Richard 'Tjapaljarri' Fejo
Sometimes, our stories start long before us; that’s certainly the case for Richard Fejo. Larrakia on his father’s side and Warramungu on his mum’s side, Richard shares the story that shaped his story and possibly yours too.
Richard is a saltwater man born and raised in Darwin. His Dad's family are Larrakia and his Mum comes from Warramungu country, down near Tennant Creek. Even though Richard calls the Top End home, it was a trip to his Mum's country back when he was seven, that really opened his eyes.
This story was told at Darwin Entertainment Festival on 21 May 2016 for Garrmalang Festival.
