AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The individual stories are of an oral history that portrays the survival and struggle of Aboriginal people in the Pilbara. It covers the period of the 1920's to the present day, revealing a seamless continuity of the lives of Aboriginal people before the invaders and the after affects of colonisation. The storyteller's portray the 'unrelenting struggle against domination by mainstream society' and their survival. The Karijini people bring to light the pressing issues of the 1990's including their 'contribution to a reconciliation process'.

Notes

  • The anthology Karijini Mirlimirli is a collection of Aboriginal voices expressing the author's ties to their traditional lands in Karijini National Park in the Hamersley Ranges. Each story is testament to the authors' journey throughout the Pilbara region and the neighbouring lands they have travelled. Their voices demonstrate the determination of three tribal groups and one united organisation, the Karijini Aboriginal Corporation in their pursuit to claim rightful ownerhip of their traditional lands. Each account is a historical record of their struggle to provide a better future for themselves and their children.
