AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This book is a collection of Aboriginal life histories from the Western Lake Eyre Basin. The interviews were conducted over a four year period with both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal participants. These memories represent various time periods, geography, government policies and interactions of the individuals telling their stories. The oral histories represent the daily lives of Aboriginal people and their perspectives. It 'records a history of oppression and deprivation, disease and exploitation, but also celebrates the survival of a rich culture and the growth of political awareness and community self management.' (Adapted from back cover).
