Together they began ministering to the Kuku Yulanji Aboriginal people who had been forced to gather in small groups throughout the Daintree Rainforest. Ten years later, a Mission was built on land purchased by the Assembly of God (Qld.) beside the Daintree River and fifty to seventy people moved there. For the next twenty years, they grew bananas and pineapples, built homes and struggled with a government policy that controlled most aspects of their lives. This is the story of how, in a rapidly changing world, the Kuku Yulanji and the Missionaries sought to understand each other at a time before Reconciliation became a national objective.
