Zita is not only an important Aboriginal artist she is a prominent member of the Aboriginal human rights movement who fought for for the recognition of the ‘stolen’ generation of Aboriginal children. Zita was herself removed from her home and parents 100 km north of Alice Springs when she was just 8 years old and sent to Melville Island. She is recognised as a tireless member the groups who worked to reunite families through their linked-up service. She was among those invited to Canberra by then Australian Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd to witness his historic apology to this generation of children. Zita is highly regarded for her intricately detailed, spiritual depictions of women’s traditional and ceremonial lives and today paints for enjoyment at her home in Alice Springs.
