About the Author

Daisy Utemorrah, an elder of the wunambal people was born and grew up on the Kunmunya Mission in the Kimberleys. Her family background gave her fluency in three Aboriginal languages, Wunambal, Ngarinyin, and Worora. She later moved to Mowanjum Mission, near Derby, where she was married first to a promised husband and, after his death, to Laurie Utemorrah. She had a son and a daughter with her second husband. Daisy Utemorrah began writing the stories of her people in order to ensure the continuity of Aboriginal culture. Described as a deeply sensitive and spiritual person who assisted many people, she was well loved by her friends and her community.
