The Yolngu Nation is expecting more than just words from the Prime Minister after his recent trip to Arnhem Land.

Prominent Yolngu man Dr Djiniyini Gondarra (pictured) expressed his sincere gratitude in an open letter to Prime Minister Tony Abbott, after his acknowledgement of the Crown's past wrongs under British settlement.

Speaking on behalf of Dr Gondarra, author and longtime acquaintance Richard Trudgen says the PM gives hope, but his sincerity is yet to be determined.
