  • Dedication:

    To the memory of my husband Cecil William Holmes,

    author and cinema pioneer, an untiring fighter for human rights.

    To my friends and teachers, Alie Miller Wurraputiwai Mungatopi,

    and his wife Polly Miller Paiahningmaiu.

    Who will guide us now and cherish our Tiwi ways,

    Passing them on so tenderly from hand to hand,

    Like rare and precious gems

    To coming generations.
