Return to Majaddin: A Kimberley Homecoming
Ngarinyin Elder and community leader, Eddie Bear shares his family story with Dr Robert Hoskin, researcher and retired minister of the Uniting Church. The story begins with life in the remote land of Majaddin in the West Kimberley and continues through colonialist incursions as his family took refuge at the Munja Aboriginal feeding station on the Kimberley Coast.
Eddie and his family lived and worked on Kimberley Pastoral Stations (Kimberley Downs and Napier) before settling at Mowanjum. The book thus explores issues of Assimilation, Self-determination and Aboriginal rights through Native Title and return to homelands.
