Tributes flowed this week as Australia mourned the death of the mother of native title, Bonita Mabo. Dr Mabo, the wife of Eddie Mabo, worked tirelessly alongside her husband for land rights.

She passed away just days after being awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Letters from James Cook University in Queensland recognising her contribution to social justice and human rights.
