Aunty Bonita Mabo was a true leader and a generous, much loved Elder.

Aunty Bonita was known for her determination, commitment and generosity of spirit. She achieved so much and worked tirelessly throughout her life. Aunty Bonita and her late husband, Uncle Eddie Mabo paved the way for generations of leaders, advocates and activists. This is a better place because of them.

The FPDN ELDA Council, FPDN Board and staff  wish to acknowledge Aunty Bonita for the wisdom she shared with us and the guidance she provided as a member of our ELDA council. She will be greatly missed, but we carry with us the wonderful experience of knowing her and learning from her. We pay our respects to Aunty Bonita and send our love and condolences to her loved ones and all in the community mourning her loss at the moment.

Vale Aunty Bonita Mabo.
