Summary

'Lies, Lies, Lies' shouted the newspaper headlines following the Royal Commission decision into building the Hindmarsh Island Bridge. Doreen Kartinyeri, key Ngarrindjeri spokeswoman, was devastated. How could whitefella law fail to protect Aboriginal womens sites? Against a backdrop of abuse, threats and ill-health, Doreen fought back.

Notes

"Doreen was a female warrior, dedicated to upholding and protecting Ngarrindjeri law. Here she reveals a deep-set desire for social justice, fuelled by passionate love and anger. Her wit and humour abound; her integrity and sense of justice inspire"--

Includes index.
