Leading Lady: Lowitja's Legacy description

Described by Noel Pearson as “the most outstanding Aboriginal leader of the contemporary era”, Lowitja O’Donoghue navigated an early life of loss, racism and servitude to become the first Chair of Australia’s best attempt to facilitate self-determination for its Indigenous peoples, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission. She was a lead negotiator on the Native Title Act with Paul Keating, who later called her a “leader with an unfailing instinct for enlargement”. Stuart Rintoul’s impressive, authorised biography of this important Australian leader is informed by meticulous research and a strong personal relationship with his subject.
