What does an Aboriginal person look like?
Do you see dark skin, dark eyes, a broad nose and a painted face?
Today we speak to Tiddas 4 Tiddas host Marlee Silva about what it's like to grow up Indigenous in suburban Australia and why our Tourism Australia view on what an Aboriginal person looks like is not everyone's truth.
Host/Producer: Claire Murphy
Executive Producer: Elle Beattie
Audio Producer: Ian Camilleri
