Arrernte Alyawarr elder Rosalie Kunoth-Monks says she's sick of what she describes as assimilationist policies by Australian governments.

On the weekend, the Federal Government announced its intended changes for remote welfare policy, with jobseekers having to work for the dole five-days-a-week for 12 months in the year.

In city and regional areas, jobseekers only have to take part for six months.

Ms Kunoth-Monks (pictured), the Northern Territorian of the Year, told Koori Radio she was shocked to hear of the policy.

She says she's concerned people won't have time to practice their culture.
