During her early years, Jane Christophersen was raised living off the land in the Kakadu National Park. Around age nine she was taken away to live with a family in Darwin. She is a traditional owner of Kakadu, an elder of the Bunitj clan and has also been a member of the Kakadu Board of Management. She believes that learning from experience is the most valuable way of teaching and that knowledge passed on through Aboriginal families is important for all children.
