Product Description

Julie Dowling’s Maternal great grand Uncle Sam Winmar was half-brother to her great grandmother Mary Latham (nee Oliver). Sam was the son of Ninghan “Fred” Winmar who was assumed to be Noongar. Mary Latham and San Winmar shared the same mother whose name was Melbin. Sam worked as a stockman, station manager (unheard of during that time) and tracker for almost no payment other than food and shelter. The symbols on the back are of the tracks and meeting places he visited between Noongar and Badimaya country and around his head are tracks of jardi (goanna). Sam passed away in Mt Magnet at an old age in 1960.
