Matthew-Ngamurarri-Heffernan was Indigenous X host from December 1 to December 6, 2013.
Five questions to Matthew
My other role model is my uncle George Barrawanga: he told all of Australia – and posthumously is still telling Australia – to “Stand up, stand up and be counted”. Lastly, my friend and mentor Natalie Walker, who is an amazing woman, with an amazing mind and I believe a lot can be said about a person who has achieved lots but remains humble.
Now I believe we’re seeing the vestiges in both Indigenous people and non-Indigenous people of this toxic system, which manifests in issues such as suicide, drug and alcohol abuse and so on.
