Elijah Ingram (he/him/his)

Elijah Ingram is a proud Wiradjuri man from Leeton in NSW.

Elijah says availability of support systems and access to quality healthcare are important issues for Aboriginal youth currently dealing with the adverse mental health impacts of COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions.

Community support systems include Local Aboriginal Land Councils, and Elijah says he will focus on strategic connections to encourage youth memberships in the Land Rights network.

Elijah is a member of the Leeton and District Local Aboriginal Land Council, is studying a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Indigenous Studies at Macquarie University, is a former Commander of an Army Cadet battalion, and is a previous NSWALC YAC representative for the Wiradjuri Region.
