Introducing Trent Nelson – a proud Dja Dja Wurrung and Yorta Yorta man representing the North West region and the Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation.
Trent has extensive experience working in land management with Parks Victoria managing the Dja Dja Wurrung Ranger Program and the revival of Djandak Wii (country fire) in central Victoria. Trent is now the Chairperson of the Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation and his role is to support and encourage his people to deliver their aspirations on country.
This is why Trent wanted to become a Member on the First Peoples’ Assembly, so he can support and lead conversations to create a better future for Dja Dja Wurrung people and the future generations.
“My passion and drive for what I do comes from my strong connections through our family, the old people that fought for our rights and our existence a long time ago.”
