John ‘Sandy’ Atkinson AM 

A leader in Aboriginal affairs.


John Atkinson - known widely as Uncle Sandy - was a Bangerang Elder and leader in Aboriginal affairs in Victoria. While he had an extensive record of service to his local community, the impact of his work in the areas of Aboriginal culture, art and languages was felt far beyond the Murray Goulburn region he called home.
