To celebrate Indigenous Literacy Day, we speak with an artist and an academic who just happen to be brothers.
For younger brother Gregg, while he “speaks to the little people” older brother Tony “speaks to the big people”, but their goals happen to be the same.
With a love of poetry, music and sport, the Dreiss brothers have made the rich storytelling culture of First Nations and Torres Strait Islander people their life’s work.
