14 MEMENTO News from the National Archives The most recent addition to our Uncommon Lives website -- Dhakiyarr Wirrpanda -- was launched in Canberra on 8 November 2004. The website was officially launched by Dhukul and Wuyal Wirrpanda, grandsons of Dhakiyarr. They hope those who read Dhakiyarr's story will work as he did, towards reconciliation between Aboriginal people and other Australians. Dhukul (above) reflected on Dhakiyarr, the warrior and leader, as 'a real man of knowledge and wisdom'. Visit the website at uncommonlives.naa.gov.au to find out more about Dhakiyarr.
