In 2019, Rembarrnga, Dalabon, and Mayili Elders invited women caring for Country from across the NT to meet at Bawurrbarnda in Central Arnhem Land. Here, women from 32 ranger groups articulated a shared vision:
We are strong Indigenous women of the Northern Territory. We stand united as one strong voice. We commit to a network that gives equal power to the rights of all our women. Strong Women means Healthy Country.
Today, our network is known as the Strong Women for Healthy Country Network, reaching hundreds of women throughout the Territory. We are currently auspiced by Mimal Land Management Aboriginal Corporation while we design our own independent organisation, with women from across 20 remote communities providing direction at ‘Message Stick Meetings.’
Women continue to gather at our forums, collaborating, communicating, and advocating together as a network, putting our priorities into action. These priorities include attracting more support for Indigenous women working as mentors in their communities and organisations, connecting them with critical services and each other, and delivering regional women's healing camps.

This opportunity is open to Indigenous women and non-binary people based in the Northern Territory.
