Abstract

Pat Torres is based in Broome, Western Australia. Her book the Story of Crow was written with her aunt Magdalene Williams, one of the last fluent speakers of Nyul Nyul, the traditional language of the people of Beagle Bay in Western Australia. Pat graduated from university with a BA degree and a Diploma of Education. When she did her degree ten years ago there were only 22 Aboriginal graduates in Australia. Funded by the Australian Bicentennial Authority’s National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Program, the stories are published by the first Aboriginal publishing house, Magabala Books, an arm of the Kimberley Aboriginal Law and Culture Centre.
