Experiencing the Outback and Learning through Experience
The Native Title Internship Program provides law and anthropology latter-year students and recent graduates with insight into the workings of an Aboriginal land council.
When I was accepted to undertake an Aurora internship in Anthropology at the Goldfields Land and Sea Council in Kalgoorlie, WA, I was told to have low expectations. Land councils are hectic places, funding is tight and staff are overworked.
I was placed at the Goldfields Land and Sea Council (GLSC) for five weeks as part of the Aurora Internship Program summer 2016/17 round.
In July 2019, through the Aurora Internship Program, I was fortunate enough to take part in an internship at Aboriginal Legal Services – Kalgoorlie for four weeks.
