Summary
Traces the history of the Aboriginal people of Weipa South since the first time white men arrived in 1606. "Welcome to my home" looks at life today among the people of Weipa South in the presence of one of the largest bauxite mines in the world. The early influence of the church and government is shown using historic footage shot in the 1930s by ameteur cinematographer J.W Bleakley, Chief Protector of the Aboriginal for Queensland, and through interviews with Aboriginal community leaders who recall their childhood. The ancestors of this Aboriginal community were the first Aborigines to have contact with Europeans in Australia. Now their dependents have been thrust into modern western life - and this is their story. [Synopsis taken from publicity leaflet]
