Tiwi Story: Turning History Downside Up


Stories of the resilience, creativity and survival of Tiwi people.

From triumph over a global power when the British navy attempted to colonize the Tiwi Islands in 1824 to showing the Catholic church they had much more to learn about the women they were trying to control, the Tiwi story is one of resilience, creativity and survival.

Known for their fortitude, strength, exquisitely detailed artwork and their devotion to Australian Rules football, this is an essential text for anyone interested in the true history of Australia and its First Nations people.
