"I Burnum Burnum, hereby sever all ties with the Author Marlo Morgan and the book entitled
'Mutant Message Down Under'. My reaction to the book was an innocent response to what I
considered an account of an inner journey, which uplifted Aboriginal Australians in the
eyes of the world. In my innocence, I did not understand the tribal ramifications of my
support for the Author.
I am a non-initiated, non-traditional, urbanised, Aboriginal
from the East Coast of Australia".
The Dumbartung Aboriginal Corporation Respectfully sympathises with the passing
away of Burnum Burnum during August, 1997.
