Undermined - Tales from the Kimberley


UNDERMINED advocates for Indigenous rights in relation to land, law and culture.
Using the film as a catalyst for discussion and action, we will rally government,
industry, and the international public for urgent social change.

Our aim is to change the conversation about development of Northern Australia to
include Indigenous-led, owned and managed development, Indigenous science,
cultural solutions and alternative industries around conservation and land


Under the direction of Albert Wiggan, Anne Poelina and impact leaders DAF, we
have developed a detailed Impact Strategy to best leverage the film's publicity.
Some activities include:

- online inventory of Aboriginal businesses in the Kimberley
- micro-docs for online, training, campaigning and education
- partnering on The Kimberley: Like Nowhere Else campaign,
to save the Fitzroy River
- speaker tour
- community consultation report,
capturing effects of corporate tactics
- corporate and parliamentary screenings
with report on corporate responsibility

Our Impact Strategy is still at draft stage, and our next step is to travel to the
Kimberley for further consultation around these plans ahead of the film's cinema


We are urgently seeking ,000 to take the film back to the Kimberley on a tour
of remote communities before the wet season sets in this year.

Although the key participants have seen the film, it is important to share it with the
broader language groups and to do further consultations around the Impact Strategy
before the cinema release in February 2019. Our planned stops include:

Muludja - home to June and Mervyn's family 
Fitzroy Crossing - home to Kevin and the Oscars
Halls Creek - home to Josie Farrer's family
Wyndham - home to Floyd and Oombulgurri mob
Kununurra - home to Merle and Oombulgurri mob
Ngallagunda (Gibb River) - home to Nancy and Alfie
Derby - home to Nancy and Alfie's family
Balginjirr - home to Anne Poelina
Broome - home to Peter Yu
Beagle Bay - home to Albert, Rennie and Venessa

After each community screening, we will capture the discussion and gather
evidence and opinions from those being impacted by development to be tabled with
key decision-makers. We will work with community and research partners to
generate this report.

The Kimberley covers an area roughly three times the size of England, so we need
your support to make this happen! Please consider making a tax-deductible
donation to help us on this impact journey.
