This absorbing and personal account of Wik activist Jean George Awumpun offers a rare understanding of Aboriginal identity and traditional land. To illustrate her proud Alngith Wikwaya beginnings, Awumpun’s early history is told through family member and Alngith descendant Fiona Doyle. This ancestral history combines with the story of Awumpun’s struggle in the Wik native title claims, which advanced the earlier Mabo Decision onto mainland Australia.
Using photographs, traditionally inspired art and language terms, Fiona Doyle invites us into the heart of Cape York’s Wikwaya country.
