Summary "The People of the Sun and Shadow are the Spinifex people. The duality reflects their association with land, defines their kinship and is the backbone of their religion. That association with land, law and people continued, cocooned within the spinifex plains of the Western Desert, for hundreds of generations until the Spinifex People were shaken from their nomadic solitude by the atomic shock of Maralinga. It was 1952 and the Spinifex people were about to meet white Australia."
