Early last week the KJ Martu Leadership Program participants attended the Magistrates conference in Perth.
The team had been invited as guest speakers at special invitation from the Pilbara Magistrate Deen Potter. The conference is an annual event and there were eight magistrates gathered from different regional areas in Western Australia.
Deen has developed a special relationship with the leadership team ever since he ventured out onto Martu country with the Jigalong rangers last year. In the words of Galvin Roberts who was the instigator of the on-country trip. “We wanted to give the magistrate a chance to see more of Martu than what he sees in the courtroom.”
