An artist and author who shared the story of the Aboriginal people at Whitegate Camp in an award winning novel, says the camp has gone backwards despite the cultural significance of the traditional owners. The Hayes family who are recognized by many as the senior traditional custodians of the area are being denied basic services afforded to most Australians.
Rod Moss artist , author and long time friend of the Whitegate families says the camp has gone back to the way it was when he first visited 25 years ago.
Rod talks with Damien Williams about his journey with the Whitegate Mob.
