Dion Harris

Posted: December 2nd, 2014

Dion is a Naaguja Wajarri man from Northampton.

To Dion going out on Country can be very healing and it is an important part of keeping healthy. He learned a lot from his grandfather who was a Wajarri elder and he has strong convictions in passing down this knowledge to future generations. He believes it is vital to educate more people about Country to protect the heritage and culture of these sites.

Dion also attended Curtin University where he studied geology. He has a strong interest in creating more employment and education opportunities for young people in his community.

Dion was elected to the Yamatji Regional Committee at the Yamatji Annual Regional Meeting on 30th November 2014.
