"The wintamarra tree is a permanent reminder of the beginning of my life. The journey of healing and the healing process is similar to the wintamarra tree. It's always been there waiting for me to come and reconnect to my birthplace." - Doris Pilkington Garimara.

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.
