The reality and pain of forced removal...50 years later !

24th Nov 2020

Born under a gum tree on land earmarked by government for the Giles Weather Station, Dr Elizabeth Ellis says that in 1962 her parents and grandparents were still living a semi-nomadic life. Even though they were on the verge of entering a stage of settled existence they were removed from their country and dispersed far and wide.

Dr Ellis told CAAMA Radio that despite the removal their family never lost contact with one another… and eventually found their way back home.

The Ngaatjatjarra educator, interpreter and linguist who has taught her language in France …. shares her story with lifelong friend Jenny Hubertson.
