Doris Pilkington Garimara was born on traditional birthing ground under the wintamarra tree.

Her life in the Mardu camp was disrupted when as a three-year-old she was taken by the authorities to live within the confines of Moore River Native Settlement.

Her remarkable story follows on from the courageous journey of her mother Molly Craig, made legendary in the film, Rabbit-Proof Fence.
