    In this interview Patricia talks about the emotional impact on her of the return of Mungo Man to Mungo National Park in November 2017.
    Patricia also speaks of her ancestors, her great-great grandparents, and the unacknowledged work and immense support looking after the community by her mother and step-father as Matron and care taker at the Murrin Bridge Mission where she grew up in Central NSW. She discusses her family, as one of 13 children, and her education, where she was the first Aboriginal student in her area to complete Year 10.
    She also speaks about the school programs she has created specifically for Indigenous children.
    Patricia also reads a story she wrote about her aunt Granny Rosie (33:00) - who was reputed as the best shot in Murrin Bridge, and would take Patricia on hunting trips when she was young. Patricia was given a special mention in the Indigenous Writer’s Award in 2016 in Mildura for this story.
