The story of a non-Aboriginal man who crossed over into the Aboriginal world, Alick Jackomos became fully immersed in Aboriginal welfare work and activism for Aboriginal rights. His life is set in the context of evolving Aboriginal activism, yet there were moments of controversy as he was a non-Aboriginal man, with an Aboriginal family, living and moving in an Aboriginal world and working for Aboriginal causes.

Review quote

"In a fine passage Broome and Manning write that for Alick life 'was a journey to oneness' . . . "A Man of All Tribes" is a timely production that provides us with more generous perspectives for thinking about the nature of identity and what it means to be Australian." --Philip J Morrissey, "Australian Journal of Indigenous Education"
