Banjo Morton: the untold story

TLF ID A002413

In 1949, after many years of being paid only in rations, Banjo Morton and seven other Alyawarra men decided they wanted proper wages for their work as stockmen and station hands at the Lake Nash cattle station in the Northern Territory. They walked off in protest. This rich media site records the history of that protest and follows their continuing struggles for rights by the Alyawarra. The site also explores the rich culture, technologies ,the arts of the Allywarra and the Homelands movement.
