One of my #Becauseofherwecan role models is another deadly #Martu woman - my auntie Doris Nugi Garimara Pilkington (1937 - 2014). She has inspired me to not give up on my vision of being a professional novelist.
Auntie Doris won the David Unaipon Award in 1990 (at the age of 53) for her novel Caprice: A Stockman's Daughter. Her second novel, Follow The Rabbit-Proof Fence was published in 1996 (children's version in 2006). And the sequel Under the Wintamarra Tree in 2002.
After the movie version of Rabbit-Proof Fence was released in 2002, Auntie Doris was catapulted on to the world stage. She travelled throughout Australia and overseas talking about the Stolen Generations. She met survivors, family, supporters, writers, popstars and world leaders.
#becauseofherwecan talk about and reflect on what the Stolen Generations went through. We can be truth-talkers, and give honest accounts of these dreadful actions of the past. And stand up - to stop the increasing incidents of child removals that are occurring today.
