Co-founder of KWG, Jacinta Monck has been living in the West Kimberley for 22 years, having arrived in 1996. She spent her first 5 years living with the Goolarabooloo People, learning about country and culture, plants and places. She has been living for the last 17 years on her husbands families block in Pender Bay on the Dampier Peninsula, which they established from humble beginnings, living in a tent and carting their water.
