Jacob Cassady has paid tribute to an Aunty who played a part in getting the important Mungalla Wetlands back through the Indigenous Land Corporation.
He spoke about her when receiving an important honour at the National NAIDOC Awards 2018.
"Women are wrong to think they're as strong as men. They're so much stronger," said Jacob.
Praised for their work in protecting the noxious weeds and other environmental impacts, Mungalla Wetlands were awarded the Caring for Country Award.
