About this product
- DescriptionWhen Lowitja O'Doghue left Colebrook Home at the age of sixteen, she was told by the Matron that she would never make anything of her life! With rich personal detail and much humour this autobiography shows just how wrong that prediction was. In the book Lowitja talks about the milestones in her life, from the time she was taken from her mother at the age of two, to the years when she was head of Australia's peak Indigeus body, ATSIC, in the 1990s, to her current work as an advocate and ambassador for her people. Along the way, Lowitja's story provides a snapshot of the vibrant woman behind the public persona, and puts a human face to complex issues facing Australia today, such as reconciliation and the stolen generations.
