Aboriginal elder determined to keep advocating for West Papua
An Aboriginal artist says she will continue advocating for West Papua's independence despite a mural she created being destroyed without explanation.
Larrakia elder June Mills painted the mural onto a large wall in Darwin in 2015 and says it represented the solidarity between indigenous Australians and West Papuan people.
However the mural, which depicted both the Aboriginal and West Papuan flags and two hands reaching out, was painted over on Sunday.
June Mills says it's not clear who is responsible and she's upset and surprised by what she describes as skulduggery and a clandestine approach.
However she told Amelia Langford that she's determined to continue advocating for indigenous West Papuans and their battle for independence from Indonesia.
