Ngarra Murray

Wamba Wamba, Yorta Yorta, Dhudhuroa and Dja Dja Wurrung

I’m a Wamba Wamba, Yorta Yorta, Dhudhuroa and Dja Dja Wurrung woman based in Melbourne on Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Country.

I’m passionate about community mobilisation, nation building, and treaties in our future.

Any treaty negotiations must be grounded in customary lore, human rights, and our inherent rights as First Peoples.

Our long established bloodlines, nationhood and connection to Country must be respected and recognised in the treaty process. And our communities and Country must be at the heart of decision making when it comes to treaties on our ancestral lands and waters.

I will continue to work with communities to build consensus and a mandate across our nations and family groups to ensure we have strong representation as we prepare to negotiate treaties in Victoria.
