A Great Loss for all Indigenous Australians  

21 May 2002


All Indigenous people have suffered a great loss with news of the death of Janey Arnold.

Aunty Janey was a powerful advocate for her people in Queensland and across the country.

She was a tireless worker for the cause and will be sorely missed by everyone.

Her name will live on in all of the work we do to improve the health and well being of our constituents.

Her life’s work was an example for us all.

On behalf of the Board of ATSIC I wish to express my sincere condolences to her extended family.

Comissioner Ray Robinson ATSIC Deputy Chair.
