Dominic WY Kanak

Councillor for Waverley – Bondi Ward

I have been The Greens Councillor for Bondi Ward since 1999 and have held the positions of Deputy Mayor (2007-2008, 2017-2019) and Chair of East Region Local Government First Nations Forum.

"I was born on Yuwibara Country, Mackay, Queensland. I’m Torres Strait (Erub) and South Sea Islander (Epi). I’m a proud TI grandfather of a Murri-Yorta-Yorta Family.
My policy interests include protection of heritage, Community/Native Title/Crown Land & Water, ecological sustainability and resilience, social justice advocacy and supporting the homeless and isolated in Bondi.
Outside of politics, I appeared in ABC TV’s acclaimed “Redfern Now” in 2012, and was a Commonwealth Education Coordinator for the UN International Year for the World’s Indigenous Peoples.
