Nathan “Mudyi” Sentance (me) is a Wiradjuri man from the Mowgee clan who grew up on Darkinjung Country, NSW. I am is a descendant of Diana Mudgee. I work to ensure that the cultural and historical narratives conveyed by cultural and memory institutions, such galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAM) have First Nations perspectives and that First Nations stories being told are being told and controlled by First Nations people. This is to balance the biases and misinterpretations of Aboriginal culture and people that has been previously set by GLAM institutions.
I was a participant in the 2017 NGA Indigenous Arts Leadership program and was previously the convener of the Australian Society of Archivists, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Special Interest Group. I am currently a member of the Indigenous Archive Collective.
