About the Book

Kimberley Aboriginal cultures were, and still are, dynamic entities. They have adapted while managing to retain important facets of traditional society. Even in situations of extreme brutality and white domination, Aboriginal culture showed remarkable resilience and a transformed Aboriginality survived. We Won the Victory tells the story of contact betwen the Aboriginal people of the north-west Kimberley coastal region and the various intruders upon their land. It is a fascinating and engaging work of the history of a part of Australia where there has been contact with many outsiders from many countries over the centuries. There have been many mutually positive contacts, many negative contacts and many battles but in the end, the Aborigines remain, still in control of their land and culture.
