“I saw white people at Ernabella when I was just little – they were missionaries and school teachers. Before that I was walking around with no clothes on, traditional way. When I was a boy I liked to be swimming at the creek between Ernabella and Fregon. My dad was working at Ernabella with the sheep – he was looking after them and shearing them. Sometimes we would run away and go hunting and riding on the donkeys and the camel, we got the donkeys as friends, mine was a special white one.”
