Many Indigenous Australians are faced with crushing circumstances as they (and their culture) try to fit into the cogs of our Western Society ... and they are churned out, often broken. For a large part, the two cultures just don't fit. There are, however, other subtle ways in which the two cultures have met and exchanged ... learned from each other. It's not entirely straight forward (nothing, indeed, ever is). But this girl will probably face an awful lot of tragedy, injustice, sickness, alcoholism, misunderstanding, denied opportunity ...
But look at the joy in her eyes!
