Description

A unique collaboration between non-Indigenous Queensland author David Spillman and Northern Territory Aboriginal woman Lisa Wilyuka. Us Mob Walawurru explores cultural difference and untold history through the eyes of Ruby, a young Aboriginal girl. The book takes place in the 1960s, in an Aboriginal community in Central Australia. The story revolves around the new silver bullet school and the cultural challenges faced by both the community members and the well-meaning school teacher. Ruby tells of her own awakening and leads us into some of the momentous events of the time, including the 1967 Aboriginal citizenship referendum and the buy-back of pastoral leases.
