MEEt JOhN dANAlIS John will be speaking at chermside library about his book Riding the Black Cockatoo. All through his growing-up years, John Danalis’s family had an Aboriginal skull on the mantelpiece; yet only as an adult did he ask where it came from and whether it should be restored to its rightful owners.
