Julie Walker's interview in Port Hedland

Julie Walker discusses her childhood living a semi-traditional life, and her parents who worked on stations mustering cattle and doing farmwork, and the stories they shared with her about their experiences of war time at home. Julie also explains her opinions on Aboriginal service, and how she feels there should be more focus on the conflict between settlers and Aboriginal people.

This interview took place on 3 September 2015 in Port Hedland and was conducted by Dr Mary Anne Jebb and Professor Mick Dodson as part of the Australian Research Council-funded research project Serving our Country: a history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the defence of Australia.
