In Australia the issue of aboriginal reconciliation has been in the local media for a number of years highlighted by issues such as; the 'Stolen Generation' (the forced removal of black children into white homes during the 20th Century) and land claims based on the historic 'Mabo' ruling of last decade. With the background of the Sydney 2000 Olympics, the indigenous population of Australia will be ensuring that aboriginal rights take centre stage in the world media. Dr Roberta Sykes is an activist striving for the recognition of aboriginals in Australia since the late 1960's through to today. As part of the original 'Tent Embassy' in 1972 she is both revered and ignored by whites and blacks in Australia. Snake Cradle is the first in an autobiographical trilogy written by Sykes.
