This book examines the 'painting' of Australia as a metaphor. It is an educative text on Australia's shared history from an Indigenous perspective. It shares the voice of the first people.

White People Are Nomads is a book which shares the often untold and largely unknown story of Australia’s shared history with Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians. It offers insight into a history that has not been taught to us in schools or universities until recently.

The book looks through the eyes of our First Australians, and speaks from an Aboriginal perspective, which might come as a shock to those who have only known the Western perspective.

White People Are Nomads has been written in 3 sections:

The first, “book one”, follows the timeline of Australia since colonisation and examines milestones of historical significance. It shares facts along with an appreciation of the nature and significance of current issues including Aboriginal self determination, cross-cultural relationships, land rights, health, law, education and community.

“Book two” is a book of personal stories contributed by the Carlton family from the East Kimberley in Western Australia.Through these stories, facts are verified, validated and brought into the context of Aborignal people living under two ideologies, their resilience and strength.

“Book three” highlights the similarities of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal women’s journeys. It parallels their roles as caretakers and nurturers alongside Mother Nature herself. Women and Aboriginal people, alongside Mother Nature have been fighting to have their voice heard for a just and even balance of power. Their perspective is critically needed to correct the imbalance and begin the healing to restore the connections which have been frayed, broken or lost over time.

White People Are Nomads is a deeply layered contemporary parable depicting the layers of life—the social, cultural, historical, political and spiritual fabric of Australia. It acknowledges there is now a huge willingness to embrace new ideologies and fill the gaps that will raise our consciousness to enable us to step forward together. White People Are Nomads is a story about reconciling the many layers that are the story of us all.
