This book, the Mabo Interpretive Wall and Mabo Timeline website draw significantly on the published works of Noel Loos, Henry Reynolds and Bryan Keon-Cohen.

Gail Mabo provided invaluable advice on the design elements of the Mabo Interpretative Wall and gave permission to reproduce treasured family photos that bring special value to the timeline book project. She generously gave her time to provide feedback on drafts of this book.

Dorothy Savage, Bindal spokesperson, collaborated on the acknowledgement of country for the Mabo Interpretive Wall that stands on Bindal land in the Eddie Koiki Mabo Library and shared creation stories and symbols that tell the story of this special place.

Dr Daniel Lavery, Adjunct Research Fellow in the College of Business, Law and Governance at James Cook University. Daniel’s PhD focused on Indigenous sovereignties re-emerging in the Australian landscape in the native title era.

Professor Martin Nakata, Deputy Vice Chancellor, Indigenous Education and Strategy, James Cook University, provided advice and guidance for the acknowledgement of country for the Mabo Interperative Wall.

Thanks must also go to James Cook University Library staff who have worked tirelessly, researched diligently, consulted widely, and collaborated extensively to share the timeline of Eddie Koiki Mabo’s legacy.
