Nigel Millgate grew up in the rural community of Dubbo, New South Wales. He’s a proud Karulkiyalu man of the Ngemba Nation, with deep roots to his ancestral lands. For the last ten years, Nigel has worked within indigenous communities across Australia, where he empowers people through culture, education, employment, and youth suicide prevention.
He’s also an avid bowhunter who spends the majority of his time outdoors. Recently Nigel invited me to tag along. There were things I couldn’t film, record, or even talk about, but there’s just as much that I can. In this episode of Anchored, Nigel and I sit down to discuss the indigenous people of Australia, their incredible history, and a little bit of insight on where they are today.
