Tributes are flowing for legendary First Nations broadcaster and Indigenous leader Tiga Bayles, who died aged 62 from cancer yesterday morning. He was a well-known voice in community radio and widely recognised for his contribution to Indigenous media. As former chairman of the NSW Land Council, Tiga Bayles is also being remembered as an inspiring teacher and a leader who did much to amplify Indigenous voices in land rights campaigns.
