Whispers of This Wik Woman [Book Review]

Click on the cover image above to read some pages of this book! This personal account of Wik activist Jean George Awumpun offers an understanding of Aboriginal identity and traditional land.


To illustrate her proud Alngith Wikwaya beginnings, Awumpun's early history is told through family member and Alngith descendant Fiona Doyle. This ancestral history combines with the story of Awumpun's struggle in the Wik native title claims, which advanced the earlier Mabo Decision onto mainland Australia.

Using photographs, traditionally inspired art and language terms, Fiona Doyle invites us into the heart of Cape York's Wikwaya country. Help Centre.

Inspired by the community she watched so often, she decided to join in and make her own ASMR videos as well. She also posts vlogs of trips to different conventions, involving cosplay, and performing in skits on stage with other cosplayers. She is also an active Twitch streamer, live-streaming at least three times a week. Not much is known about her personal life, but it is known that she was born in upstate New York in the United States.

She now lives in the rural Midwest with her fiance Ben, and also has an older brother.

She frequently fosters cats and dogs that can be seen during her live streams on Twitch. Every January, she hosts the Gibi Cup, an Overwatch Tournament that her viewers compete in for prizes.

Gibi was the first ASMR creator to use the name trigger, a now-popular trigger among other creators that feature people's names being repeated for added effectiveness. The most popular video on her channel, reaching 13 million views, was a tapping video, which is seen as very popular in the ASMR community. I am forever indebted to you for your support and great words of encouragement.

Your time, consistent energy and keen sharp eye for detail has enabled this story to now flow. And last of all Stephanie Furlong-Tiplady adopted mother of Whispers. Your inspiration, encouragement, assistance, guidance and unconditional love and friendship means so much. I remember many a night curled up in her lap beside the campfire, the beautiful night sky over our heads, the land standing still, possessing a powerful silence that clearly introduced the privileged one I am truly blessed to have lived and grown up among my own people.

Here families patiently and freely taught me all that I now possess in cultural knowledge. Sweet, sweet images, as sweet as eginthak sugar bag itself occupy my mind, spirit and soul, whispering an urgency to pass it all on, fuelling my desire and challenging my ability to do so. The beginnings of Whispers began to emerge during my mid-teens, on an old typewriter that Nana had bought me when she recognised my interest in writing.

I plodded along, documenting things she had told me, knowing that one day I would need to refer to this information. Moving to Sydney at the age of sixteen to study dance at the National Aboriginal and Islander Skills Development Association NAISDA , I slowly began to see not only my grandmother but our culture, our lifestyle and our country in a different way, from a fresh perspective.

The smells that surrounded me no longer had the aroma of sugar bag or oochunyung wattle flower ; instead they were the smells of fumes from the exhaust of city traffic and cappuccino, as if these spirits owned the city.

Instead of the call of mopoke or twal eagle filling the air, there was the endless drilling of construction work and of shopfront salesmen trying to lure you into buying their useless, cheap products. As the years progressed, I became accustomed to the new smells and sounds of this exuberant city and it did become home for a brief but enriching time in my life. My first serious attempt at Whispers occurred in the mid to late s when a number of incidents reminded me of my obligation and responsibility to document the life of this very special woman.

Endless conversations with my good friend and mentor Steph Furlong-Tiplady inspired me to pick up the pen again. By now I was the mother of three girls—Sheridan born , Justice born and Ebony born At this time I had little idea about how I was going to achieve something that would even vaguely resemble a book, let alone what it was going to take to get it into its final form. All I had was this nagging in my belly that kept me going. My youngest daughter was just nine months old.

In January of that same year my grandmother suffered a stroke, the final impetus to complete this dedication to her life. While studying, practising freelance performing and choreography, rearing my three girls and looking after Nana, I plodded along with consistent encouragement from Steph.

This book is not intended to be a history lesson on Weipa or its people, but it is my desire to portray my grandmother as broadly as possible.
