Aunty Lorraine Connelly-Northey

Meet Aunty Lorraine Connelly-Northey

Lorraine Connelly-Northey was born and raised on the adjoining tribal boundaries of the Wamba Wamba and
Wadi Wadi peoples, known today as the township of Swan Hill in north-west Victoria. Most of Connelly-Northey’s life has been spent taking in the Aboriginal history of these boundaries under the guidance of her non-Aboriginal dad and later her brother-in-law, a Wadi Wadi descendant. While over the last decade, Connelly-Northey has been living away from home on her mother’s land of connection, Waradgerie (Wiradjuri) Country, she continues to expand on her cultural knowledge along with making sacrifices to gain inspiration for her art practice.
