She is one of the last Ngiyeempaa-speaking Elders left in her community. She has fought for her Country all her life and she still does. She has always fought for education. She has fought for space in curriculum and she has fought for space in the topographic creases of our University maps. She is a tireless fighter for her people and for reconciliation between cultures. She is one of theTraditional Owners and Knowledge holders who has the cultural authority to speak for Ngiyeempaa Country.
