My Darug identity: Chris Tobin

Chris Tobin and his family “grew up as whitefellas”. It wasn’t until his cousin, Chris Bourke, did some research in the late 1980’s that he discovered his identity. Currently Chris works as a cultural interpreter for NSW National Parks. For Chris Tobin, his identity gives him heritage, responsibilities and a deep sense of belonging.
