In this week's episode, Caroline is joined by proud Gunditjmara, Bindal, Yorta Yorta and Torres Strait Islander from Mer and Erub islands person, Tarneen Onus-Browne. They are a community legal educator, writer, film maker and community organiser for Warriors of the Aboriginal Resistance.
Tarneen’s has had a key role in supporting and advocating for Indigenous communities, even releasing a film “young mob questioning treaty”, which was screened internationally at ImagineNATIVE in Toronto and Tampere Film Festival in Finland.
After recently working together, the two take the time to reflect on the courage of Aboriginal youth of today, admiring their emotional awareness, honesty and curiosity. This allows them to have a vulnerable yarn about growing up as a blackfulla in small towns and reflecting on how adversity has led them down their path today.
Tarneen opens up about their unique journey of discovering themself, their sexuality and how they navigated coming out as queer. This raw, real and beautiful yarn gives an insight into the incredible life of Tarneen and the many hats they wear, from daughter and sister, to passionate mentor and activist, with joys in film making, and baking.
