Albert Namatjira and his wife Rubina. In 1957 Namatjira and his wife gained Australian citizenship which entitled them to vote, own land, build a house and buy alcohol.

In 1957 the first Aboriginal Australians to be granted full citizenship were Albert Namatjira and his wife Rubina. It's sad that despite all the rhetoric and his considerable fame and fortune, they were denied permission to buy land and build a house, which is what they wanted to do.
