Summary For years dugong and turtle were a main source of food for Aboriginal people living in Far North Queensland. But with the numbers of these sea creatures dwindling, their former hunters have become their saviours. Aboriginal people's tracking skills have long been the stuff of legend. Since colonial times, the skills have proven invaluable to police investigations. This week Living Black goes on the trail of this mysterious art. Over in our cities, where very little is known about the health and development of urban Indigenous kids, we report on a study turning that around. And we visit the Sydney church turning itself into a fight club - all to keep Indigenous youth off the streets. Plus - The Music Project features singer Nellie Dargan
