An Aboriginal insider's view into Australia's Hindmarsh Island Affair, this remarkable record tells the personal narrative of key Ngarrindjeri spokeswoman, the late Doreen Kartinyeri. Chronicling her victorious battle for the protection of Aboriginal women's sites, this witty memoir reveals Doreen's deep-set sense of justice. Doreen's experiences at the center of the media storm surrounding the building of the Hindmarsh Island Bridge--including political scandals, legal threats, the decision of a Royal Commission, and the overturning of that Commission's decision by a Federal Court--are fascinatingly detailed in this inspiring account.
