This thesis enlarges understanding of Australian social history through a biographical study of a mixed-descent multicultural Catholic family in the north of Australia. It highlights a new dimension of the historical multiculturalism of the West Kimberley community while revealing the experiences of a hidden segment of Aboriginal society whose lives were not continuously subject to police or welfare surveillance, nor dominated by conflict and animosity. It also adds to the corpus of life story writing by Indigenous authors.
