After nine years of very hard work, and incredible lived experiences with amazing people, I am delighted to announce that I received confirmation that my PhD had been awarded on September 11th, 2019. It certainly has been a long and arduous journey, but one that I am grateful for, and which would not have been possible without the patient teaching of three Nyikina sisters, Anne Poelina, Lucy Marshall, Jeannie Warbie, their families and communities, and the people of the West Kimberley region of Western Australia. When I started this thesis I set out to make their voices heard, and if I have achieved that, I will be very proud!
