This is an edited sound recording of Bonita Mabo, widow of Indigenous land rights activist Eddie Mabo. She discusses being of South Sea Islander descent and talks about how South Sea Islanders were officially recognised as a distinct ethnic group. She states a belief that Islanders such as her ancestors who were brought to Australia from the south Pacific were part of the Stolen Generations. Mabo also states that there has been a cover-up about past mistreatment of the South Sea Islanders. The recording was made in June 2008.
