No quiere 5 mil millones

El último descendiente de la tribu Djok (Jeffrey Lee de 36 años) reusa 5 mil millones de dolares por el patrimonio de su gente. Esta trabajando para hacer su tierra sagrada un parque nacional..

Lee, a ranger in Kakadu, said incorporating Koongarra into the park is the best way to ensure that the ecologically sensitive land remains safe in the future.

"Being part of the park will ensure that the traditional laws, customs, sites, bush tucker, trees, plants and water stay the same as when they were passed on to me by my father and great-grandfather.”

As far as rejecting all that money, Lee doesn’t seem too concerned. He says that wealth holds no value.

“I’m not interested in white people offering me this or that…it doesn’t mean a thing.”
