Summary
Master versions and extra footage from a documentary produced in commemoration of the 18th anniversary of the Wave Hill walk-off in August 1984. The Gurindji community reenacts the events of the strike and walk-off from Vestey's Wave Hill cattle station in August 1966, and Gurindji men and women give personal accounts of the strike and walk-off. They travel by truck and bus to Dagaragu, Kalkaringi, and Wattie Creek, retracing the journey of the people that walked off the station. The old people explain to the young the situation in the early days and the issues they faced. One man expresses his joy that the people now have land for the children and that stories can be kept from generation to generation. The people paint up and the boys and women dance, with the accompaniment of men singing and clapping boomerangs. There is also a solo male dance. The video then cuts to documentary footage recorded at Dugaragu in May 1986 when the land title was handed back to the Gurindji community. Interviews with Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Clyde Holding, and Chairman of the Central Land Council, Pat Dodson, about the direction of land rights in the Northern Territory
