Natalie Cromb, IA's Indigenous affairs editor, is a 31 year old woman belonging to the Gamilaraay (or Kamileroi) nation of Burra Bee Dee Aboriginal Reserve, just outside of Coonabarabran in rural New South Wales, and is a proud descendant of Mary Jane Cain who founded the reserve.
Natalie has lived and worked full-time as a paralegal in Sydney for the last 10 years whilst completing her law and history degrees. She has also been raising her daughter with her partner and is passionate about passing her culture onto her daughter.
Natalie is a passionate advocate for Aboriginal people and has, in all stages of her upbringing, held representative positions and been engaged in community organisations and work. Natalie considers the political and judicial systems in this nation to be responsible for continuing poor policy and legal decisions that continue to subvert Indigenous rights. She believes this needs to be brought fully into the light.
