Correspondence from Mr Norman Fry, Chief Executive Officer the Northern Land Council following the testimonial dinner honouring retiring NLC Chairman Galarrwuy Yunupingu AM. Note reference to Shane Stone on the final page of the transcript. Subsequently Galarrwuy Yunupingu and Shane Stone started a successful business venture together styled Duphuma Resources that endured for some 9 years and continues to this day in Gumatj ownership. A business based on trust and ultimately friendship between two old protangonists - ''just another whinging whining black'' and ''a good for nothing redneck'' - how about that?
