Sisters, Pearls and Mission Girls

The sisters of St John of God have lived and worked among Aboriginal people of the north-west of Australia for almost 100 years. This fifty-six minute documentary tells their story - why they came to the area, what they did, and how they had an impact upon Aboriginal people's lives. Sisters Pearls and Mission Girls has relevance for studies of Australian History, Indigenous Studies and Religious Studies, at middle and senior secondary school levels.
