This is an edited sound recording of a Northern Territory politician, Marion Scrymgour, talking about her Tiwi and central Australian backgrounds. She says that all her life she has considered herself to be a Tiwi Islander, like her mother. However, she has also recently 'come to accept that I've got this other different side', and has made connections with her extended family on her father's side in central Australia. She says that as a politician she sees herself as a 'representative for everybody'. The recording was made in July 2008.
