Harlisha Newie

My name is Harlisha Newie. I am a proud Torres Strait Islander woman from Mabuiag and Badu Island. From my Father’s side I’m from the Goemu Tribe and from my Mother’s side I’m from the Wagadagam Tribe. For most of my life I grew up in Weipa, Cape York on Alngith Country in Far North Queensland. Studying at NAISDA I wish to further my knowledge about my culture and my people.
