Uncle Desmond Sandy

For more than 60,000 years, Aboriginal Civilisation has been led by Headsmen throughout the various regions. In the greater Brisbane region, Uncle Desmond Sandy is a Head Headsman, a position that would accord him the title of ‘King’ in European society, and a status that distinguishes him above others.

Uncle Desmond is a Yuggara man of the Chepara people and King of Brisbane Traditional Owner Elder.
