• This is a protest song about giving native Australian lands back to the Pintupi, who were among the very last
people to come in from the desert. These 'last contact' people began moving from the Gibson Desert to settlements
and missions in the 1930s. More were forcibly moved during the 1950s and 1960s to the Papunya settlement.
• In 1981, they left to return to their own country and established the Kintore community, which is nestled in the
Kintore Ranges. It is a community with a population of about 400.
• This song is one of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's "500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll".
