Alice Springs interviews

Ken Johnson –

Ken Johnson arrived in Central Australia in 1978.  His experience working with Aboriginal people to bring Mala and Bilby back from the brink of extinction won him renown and grounded him in the process of successful intercultural engagement.  In the latter part of his career, he was integral to the evolution of the Alice Springs Desert Park and Desert Knowledge movement.  Now retired, he has turned his prodigious talent to writing, with a book honouring the life of HH Finlayson in development.  In this oral history, Ken reflects on these stories and more.
