The Indigenous Land and Sea Corporation (ILSC) would like to acknowledge the passing of Kwementyaye Hoosan, Chairman of the Central Land Council. This news has come with shock and sadness.
Mr Hoosan worked tirelessly for Countryman of the Northern Territory. He was a true leader who advocated for the vulnerable in his community and the environment.
Ian Hamm, ILSC Chair, offered these words to his family and friends, “The loss of Kwementyaye Hoosan is a shock to the community of Central Australia and we offer our condolences to his family”.
He went onto say, “While his loss will be felt extensively, his efforts working for community and Country should be seen as a guiding example of continued leadership and wisdom. What he has fought for and achieved over the years should be used to inspire upcoming Aboriginal leaders.”
