Kelly Briggs was Indigenous X host from November 1 to November 8, 2013.
Five questions to Kelly
And then there’s Wayne Wharton, for his “accept no bullshit” approach to Indigenous affairs. His lack of fear in asking questions and calling out exploitation with integrity and decency is something I aspire to. He also heads the Brisbane Sovereignty Movement, which is a movement that aligns very closely with my personal ideals. It is a true grassroots movement that is community-oriented and aimed at strengthening First Nations in Australia.
My biggest role model, though, has always been my elder brother Ronald. He introduced me to books and reading. The first book of feminist theory I ever read was Germaine Greer’s The Female Eunuch, which I’m pretty sure was left on our bookshelf at home by him on one of his university holidays. He also got me interested in cultural heritage via his work. His passion and enthusiasm for the preservation and strengthening of culture through conserving our nations’ Indigenous history inspired me to pursue my own career in Indigenous spaces within libraries.
Also, more time for video games, there’s never enough time for video games.
