The Screen Guide

Many people know of Bonita Mabo, widow of the late Eddie Mabo, and the historic native title claim they successfully fought on behalf of his Torres Strait Islander people. Few realise that Bonita is an Australian of South Sea Islander and Aboriginal descent, or how, through decades of work for Indigenous rights, she raised 10 children, often single-handedly. Since her husband's death, Bonita has a new campaign and recognition for her own people. In this program, she looks back over decades of struggle and commitment and speaks of the pride she takes in sharing her heritage with her grandchildren and the wider community.
