I, the Aboriginal

Front Cover
New Holland, 2004 - Biography & Autobiography - 256 pages
My name is Waipuldanya, or Wadjiri-Wadjiri. I'm a full blood Aboriginal of the Alawa tribe of the Roper River in the Northern Territory. In his youth, Waipuldanya was taught to track and hunt wild animals, to live off the land, to provide for his family with the aid only of his spears and woomeras. This is the gripping story of his boyhood and youth, and how he trained as a skilled medical assistant, to become a citizen of both the Aboriginal and whitefella worlds. This is the first great classic of Aboriginal autobiography, as told to renowned writer, Douglas Lockwood.
