From Stockman to Statesman: Honouring the Life and Legacy of Kunmanara Lester Print E-mail

MEDIA RELEASE

on the Recent Passing of Kunmanara Lester OAM, 1949-2017 

From Stockman to Statesman: Honouring the Life and Legacy of Kunmanara Lester

As family gather at sorry camp fires, we pause today to remember a great Yankunytjatjara man. Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara honours Kunmanara Lester, the man who put the “Y” in APY, who spoke up for his people, his language, and his law. He was a legend in his own lifetime. Lester will soon be laid to rest at his place, Walatina, where in life he was always a watchful presence, a custodian of the Anangu self-determination, of those precious rights he fought for and won, and then kept on fighting for, right to the end.

At this time, APY acknowledge the tireless lifelong work of Kunmanara Lester for Anangu tjuta (Aboriginal people of the APY Lands). With his family at his side, his commitment to Anangu and Aboriginal rights took many forms: as a pioneer of court interpreting, as an advocate with Reverend Jim Downing, and later a leader of the Institute for Aboriginal Development (IAD) and Nganampa Health. In his work as a station manager at Mimili, and as chairman of Uluru Kata Tjuta, he forged connections between old and new ways of looking after Anangu land. With his insistence that Yankunytjatjara is the language of Yankunytjatjara country, he worked to keep his language alive for his grandchildren. No man or woman who follows the news, as Kunmanara did so avidly, could miss the outpouring of grief at the loss of this Aangu man, nor still the enduring gifts his work has bestowed on Anangu tjuta.
