Sullim Sallik - NAIDOC Week profile

05 July 2017

I am a Djaru, Kija and Wakaya man born in Mount Isa. I came to Tennant Creek at the age of 17, trained and worked as an Aboriginal Health Worker and in 2006 became an apprentice linesman for Power and Water in Tennant Creek.

I have built respectful working relationships with communities and their respective leaders. I work in the township of Tennant Creek and the surrounding communities of Elliott, Ali-Curung and Ti-Tree for call outs and faults. I became team leader in 2009 and recently commenced a dual electrical trade.
