AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In 1938 Jack Patton, a prominent Aboriginal leader of the day, was instrumental in establishing a newspaper aimed at Aboriginal people, written by Aboriginal people and edited by Aboriginal people. The newspaper ran for 6 editions only. During its time, Aboriginal people were able to voice their opinions and demand their rights in a public forum. Many Aboriginal people wrote to the paper to tell their stories of unfair treatment, persecution, discrimination and their own personal battles for justice and equal opportunity.'
