AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Raparapa is a collection of stories from male Elders across the West Kimberley. Each story is unique and are true accounts of their contribution to the workforce in the North. The contributors were interviewed between November 1986 and April 1987. The transcripts from 14 hours of tapes were edited to a narrative by Paul Marshall.
