My name is Mykelle Bin-Garape-Carr. I was born and raised in Cairns, Queensland. I am a proud Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander woman. I descend from the Gimuy Walubara Yidinji tribe from the Far North, Cairns Region. I also have roots from the Gunggari and Wuthathi nations also found in Queensland. I’ve grown up around traditional and Indigenous contemporary dance. Through my training at NAISDA I hope to gain new skills and new opportunities in the performing arts industry, in hopes of giving back to my people and community.
