Tjalaminu Mia is a Noongar woman with bloodline links to the Minang and Goreng peoples of the South-West of Western Australia. She has worked as a research fellow in Oral History and the Arts in the School of Indigenous Studies at the University of Western Australia. Jessica Lister is one of the Nyungar people from the Katanning area of Western Australia. She was born in 1992 and likes drawing and listening to music. Cheryl Kickett-Tucker belongs to three areas of the Noongar people - Wadjuk (Swan River), Balladong (Wheatbelt) and Yued (Moora). Her story was inspired by her family's experiences in the bush over the past twenty years. Jaylon Tucker identifies as a Wongi-Noongar. He was born on Wadjuk Noongar country and via his father he belongs to the Ngullundharra and Walyan Aboriginal people of the north-east WA goldfields. His story, Lucky Thamu, is based on his time exploring the bush with his real-life Thamu (grandfather).
