The City of Cockburn Aboriginal Oral History Project (2001)

The City of Cockburn Aboriginal Oral History Project recorded and summarised the oral histories of eleven indigenous people with a custodial or cultural connection to the Cockburn district. Most of these interviews were recorded in 2001, and were conducted by Dr. Leonie Stella from Centre for Aboriginal Studies, Curtin University of Technology.  The interview with Roma Loo-Kickett was recorded in 2005 with Uta Eckhardt and Nikki Brannigan.
