As leaders, trailblazers, politicians, activists and social change advocates, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women fought and continue to fight, for justice, equal rights, our rights to country, for law and justice, access to education, employment and to maintain and celebrate our culture, language, music and art.

The Rock NAIDOC Committee would like to acknowledge and pay our Yadaba to the following Strong Indigenous Women of the Rockhampton & Surrounding Communities. They are our mothers, our elders, our grandmothers, our aunties, our sisters and our daughters.

Because of her, we can!
