Burnum Burnum’s Statement

"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".

Yours Sincerely,

The Dumbartung Aboriginal Corporation Respectfully sympathises with the passing away of Burnum Burnum during August, 1997.
