Butchulla People Gain Native Title on K'gari (Fraser Island) by Consent Determination October 24, 2014.

After a long battle, my people have been granted recognition of our ancestral lands. This is the first part to the claim of land rights for my people. For this occasion I published “The Lighthouse Builders” story and made a traditional grass basket. I presented the book and basket to Judge Collier, who handed down the Federal Court decision. The Court was held on K'gari Queensland Australia on October 24, 2014. The ceremonies on the day included traditional dancing.
