The photo of Gough Whitlam pouring soil into elder and traditional land owner Vincent Lingiari’s hand, shot by Mervyn Bishop, Northern Territory, 1975

"Whitlam said: ‘Vincent Lingiari I solemnly hand to you these deeds as proof, in Australian law, that these lands belong to the Gurindji people and I put into your hands part of the earth itself as a sign that this land will be the possession of you and your children forever.’
Lingiari, having received the crown lease of his ancestral land, simply replied, ‘We are mates now’.
When interviewed in 2000 Bishop explained… “This image became an icon of the land rights movement in Australian political photography. The bright blue sky and red earth gives an immediate sense of place. The years of struggle are engraved on Lingiari’s face and slightly bent back, whereas Whitlam stands confident and optimistic. The white papers and words are meaningless compared to the physical action of the dry red earth falling from Whitlam’s hand to a growing mound in Lingiari’s palm. In a few minutes the two hands in the shape of an hourglass symbolically rectified the years of injustice for the Gurindji people by giving them access to their ancestral lands.”“
