    a| This is an account of the career of Donald Thomson, an anthropologist and advocate of Aboriginal self-determination, with a comprehensive understanding of Aboriginal material culture and way of life. He lived with the Yolgnu in the Northern Territory establishing great rapport with Yolgnu leader and warrior Wonggu. He later lived with the Pintupi (Bindipu) in South Australia, opposing the establishment of the Woomera Rocket Range. His support of Aboriginal culture placed him in opposition academically and philosophically to other anthropologists such as A.P. Elkin, and politically to government policies of the day.
