Abstract: Roebourne, or what the Ngarluma people call Ieramugadu, is the oldest township established in 1866 as a ‘non-Aboriginal town’ in the remote Pilbara region of Western Australia (Edmunds 2012). It is some 1,500 kilometers north on the North West Coastal Highway from Perth, one of the most isolated large cities in the world.1 The Pilbara is home to about 50,000 people, most of whom live in and around small urban centers like Roeburne, Port Hedland, Karratha and Newman.
