Abstract:

The Moore River Native Settlement. "The people in this story were from a part of Western Australia that is practically on the edge of the Great Western Desert. On the whim of the the government authorities of the day, eighteen Wongutha poeople were exiled away from their Country and their people, sent a thousand kilometeres away, almost to Perth. They were seemingly powerless. They were locked up, trucked off, given inmate numbers in a government compound - their fate was sealed. And then they escaped. It was perhaps the largest escape bid in the history of that place of exile. They escaped, and walked home to their Country." publisher blurb.
