Chair of the Papunya store, member of the MacDonnell Regional Council’s local authority and housing reference committee and former Anangu Luritjiku ranger of 10 years.

“The ranger program makes me proud. That’s why I made it up to 10 years. I taught myself along the way, become who I am now. Before the ranger program I was nothing, now I want to represent my community.

I most wanted to talk about outstations, that’s why they vote for me. I like to help them to move back, take the kids back so families can live on country.

A lot of people are really worried about the kids. They want to be able to go back to outstations. Me too, I’ve been talking about it for a long time and I feel like I want to move that way and manage our country.”
