Mundine, Price incorrectly identify Millwarparra man as grandson of Vincent Lingiari in anti-Voice material

Callan Morse -

Leading anti-Voice campaigner Nyunggai Warren Mundine AO and Northern Territory Senator Jacinta Nampijinpa Price have both falsely identified a Millwarparra man as the grandson of legendary land rights activist Vincent Lingiari through their recently-merged Indigenous Voice 'No' campaign.

Mr Mundine and Senator Price both used the image and name of Millwarparra man Stewart Lingiari in material on social media promoting the anti-Voice movement, claiming he is the grandson of Vincent Lingiari and that he opposes the Voice to parliament referendum.

The post, which includes a photo of Stewart Lingiari includes the caption "I don't want you to look at me differently. That's why I'm voting no."

Mr Lingiari said the quote attributed to him in the post was provided to him during a recent visit to Canberra, a trip he made to discuss issues relating to his hometown of Ngukurr with federal politicians.

He says he was asked to recite the sentences whilst being photographed and videoed whilst being unaware and unsure about the Indigenous Voice to Parliament referendum.

More to come.
