Alice Eather &Katrina Channells

 Let's Talk

09 August 2016

Alice Eather is a Kunibídji woman from Maningrida who grew up in Brisbane with her other two sisters – Noni and Grace. She is one of the Stingray Sisters – a new web-series directed by their childhood friend Katrina Channells, who is our other guest.

In 2016, their leadership in Maningrida has never been more important as Arnhem Land is facing one of its biggest challenges. The current Adam Giles government has further opened the Territory to unconventional forms of mining. 85% of the Northern Territory is under application or approved for oil and gas exploration. The Labor opposition has promised a moratorium on fracking if elected and The Greens have called for an outright ban. These projects threaten the landscape, the way of life, and the very survival of Indigenous communities throughout the region.
