A North Queensland-based sovereignty campaigner has welcomed the move by a Yidindji man to renounce Australian citizenship.

Murrumu Walubara Yidindji, a former NITV News chief political correspondent who was previously known as Jeremy Geia, quit his job and handed in his driver's license, birth certificate and anything suggesting a connection to Australia.

He says the only citizenship concerning him is that of the Yidindji Tribal Society.

Biri/South Sea Islander woman Dr Gracelyn Smallwood says anywhere there's been white invasion, false names were imposed on Indigenous people.
