Anne Poelina: My Story

This is the story of Dr. Anne Poelina, a Yimardoowarra, Nyikina woman from the Lower Fitzroy River, in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia. Anne has been using film as an advocacy tool in the fight against the massive push for the industrialisation of her country and the wider Kimberley region.

Please check out the Mardoowarra website.

‘Mardoowarra is the Nyikina name of the river now known as the Fitzroy in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. This site will tell you about us, the Indigenous people of the valley, our culture and way of life, our language, and our hopes and desires. These pages will also demonstrate our opposition to large-scale mining on our lands which will seriously damage our ‘River Of Life’.’
