Over March and April 2015, I completed a five week Aurora internship at the Central Land Council (CLC) in Alice Springs. Getting off the plane down the portable stairs and onto the tarmac felt like stepping onto a BBQ hotplate. “45 degrees in town today” had said the pilot on our way down.

As a recent graduate from a social science degree in anthropology and sociology I was very committed to developing my theoretical understanding of Indigenous culture and knowledge in a practical and professional work environment.
