Most of my friends are of First Nations Peoples. Just the way it is. Mum is from Croydon / Herberton, Dad from Winton / Mareeba, they met in Grade 2 at Mareeba State School, and so the roots begin.
Some 30 + years ago, my beautiful sister Janis Claxton was one of the founding contributors with the Page brothers of the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Dance School – today known as ‘Bangarra‘.
Yes, our Roots are here and they will be forevermore…

Check out some of what Bama are saying…
