Product Information

  • With humane irony the Western Australian poet Jack Davis in these two plays gives a painful insight into the process of colonisation and the transformation of his people.
  • In Kullark the action covers the death of the Aboriginal leader Yagan in 1833, the forcible separation of families at the Moore River Settlement a century later and discrimination against aboriginal returned servicemen after WWII.
  • In the Dreamers these elements are gathered together in the story of a county-town family and old Uncle Worru, who, in his dying days, receded from urban hopelessness to the life and language of the Nyoongah spirit which in him has survived 'civilisation'.
  • Includes an introduction by H.C. Coombs with an account of the Nyoongah people of South-Western Australia by Ronald M. Berndt.
