Oodgeroo Noonuccal, born on Queensland's North Stradbroke Island on November 3, 1920, was named Kathleen Jean Mary Ruska. An indigenous Australian writer and campaigner for Aboriginal rights, she married and became well known as Kath Walker. She adopted the name of her tribe, Noonuccal, in honor of the Aboriginal people's cause, naming herself Oodgeroo (meaning "paperbark tree") Noonuccal. She was the first Aboriginal Australian to publish a book of poetry, We Are Going (1964).
