Honouring Dr. Bush-Blanasi

Dr Samuel Bush-Blanasi

All of us at Roper Gulf Regional Council are saddened to learn about the passing of Dr. Samuel Bush-Blanasi, the Chair of Northern Land Council and much loved family member to many in our communities.

We pass on our deepest condolences to his family and friends as we come to terms with this news.

Dr. Bush-Blanasi was a long term resident of Wugularr (Beswick) and worked closely with many of us as an advocate for our work and a strong leader, not only for our communities and region, but across the Northern Territory and Australia.

Please be advised that the Council offices in the Nyirrunggulung Ward, including Barunga, Manyallaluk, Wugularr (Beswick) and Bulman, will be closed today and may be closed over forth coming days out of respect.
