When 16-year-old Yindjibarndi man John Pat died in a Roebourne lockup in 1983, it was more than a singular tragedy – it was part of a longer story, one that for 150 years had denied Indigenous people in the Pilbara the power to speak.

Hipbone Sticking Out takes us on a dreamlike journey through history: from Greco-Roman myths, tall ships, terra nullius, pearlers, pastoralists, slavery and exotic minerals to the lives of the Pat family in Roebourne – the here and now.
