When the Gurindji walked off Wave Hill station their demands were simple: equal wages, not meagre rations. The fight escalated into the first Aboriginal land claim. Led by head stockman Vincent Lingiari, the strike buoyed the Aboriginal rights movement down south and spurred activism for a generation. A unionist, a historian and an artist reflect on the meaning of Wave Hill.
