Stephen Stewart AKA Number Two, a highly respected Ngarla elder, photographed at Yandeyarra community in the Pilbara, WA. Number Two plays a leading role in traditional law in the Pilbara and was part of the original strike in 1946 for better pay and conditions for Aboriginal workers. It was a privilege to meet him and I feel lucky to have seen some of his amazing country. We could all learn a lot from him, his culture and his respect for the earth. I was commissioned to go to the Pilbara for Greening Australia who have a range of inspiring environmental projects running throughout Australia.  Here they have partnered with the Yandeyarra community and established a team of rangers that care for culture, country and environment.
