The granddaughter of Northern Territory Arrernte rights campaigner Rosalie Kunoth-Monks says she was inspired to see her grandmother take a stand against assimilationist policies.

The Utopia elder appeared on the ABC's Q&A program this week, saying her culture had survived despite colonisation.

She also praised the documentary film 'Utopia' for bringing Indigenous issues to light.

Amelia Kunoth-Monks (pictured) says she was pleased to see her grandmother be able to speak in a widely-view forum.
