Thanakupi who was born on the Weipa Mission; Rosella Namok who was born at Lockhart River; Evelyn McGreen who, although born at Woorabinda, moved to Hope Vale in the 1950s, where her parents were from; Emily Ngarnal Evans who was born and has lived all her life on Mornington Island.

All the information comes from items held in the Cairns Special Collection or the Main Collection, and includes exhibition catalogues, programmes and leaflets, as well as books.
