This is the story of the last remaining group of Indigenous Australians to make contact with white Australia.

The group known as the Pintupi Nine were discovered living a traditional hunter gatherer life almost 200 years after European settlers first landed in the country.

They spent their days walking enormous distances from rock-hole to water-soak searching for water, until the day in 1984 when they stumbled on the outside world and the media stumbled on them.

Now, three decades after they first laid eyes on white Australians, the Pintupi Nine have told their version of the story.
