Debesa

Debesa: The story of Frank & Katie Rodriguez

Debesa was an isolated sheep station in the West Kimberley pioneered by the author's parents.  Frank & Katie Rodriguez.  It was here that Cindy and her three siblings lived and grew up.  

Their lives combined the rich cultural heritage of their Spanish, Nigena and English ancestors.  Cindy's Spanish father Frank came to Australia to be a Benedicine monk and met her mother Katie - who had been a novitiate in a very different sort of abbey, a convent for 'black' women at Beagle Bay mission, 130 kilometres north of Broome.
