She was expelled from school at 14, so her parents sent her to stay with aunties in the safety of the countryside in Borroloola, 1,260km (780 miles) north. That’s where she met Dujuan’s dad, James, who came back with her to Alice Springs with their first child, but left when they broke up, a few years after Dujuan was born.
