“When Doris Kartinyeri was a month old, her mother died.  The family gathered to mourn their loss and welcome the new baby home.  But Doris never returned to her family – she was stolen from the hospital and placed in Colebrook Home, where she stayed for the next fourteen years.
The legacy of being a member of the Stolen Generations continued for Doris as she was placed in white homes and a virtual slave, struggled through relationships and suffered with bi-polar depression.
‘Kick the Tin’ was a game Doris KarTINyeri played in the Colebrook Home.  This is a life that has been kicked around.  And it is the compelling and sometimes witty story of a courageous journey into the soul of the individual to find meaning and substance after the loss of everything the rest of us take for granted.”
