My name is Mihail Lochowiak, I was born in Alice Springs, Northern Territory. My language groups are Kaurna (Adelaide), Ramindjeri (Coorong), Yankintjara (Pitjantiatjara lands) and Narungga (Point Pearce).
Something that is very important to me are our Elders, in particular my grandmother who teaches me a lot about Aboriginal language and culture. It’s an honour to talk about my culture to children because not many people know about our culture and the more we talk about it, the more it will give people a better understanding of Aboriginal people and their connection to the land. I am currently playing football for Sturt football Club where I have been playing for 3 years.
