“I grew up at Mount Cavanagh cattle station where my father was a stockman. It was a quiet life at Cavanagh, we didn’t have school, but the station lady taught us English there and we would help her with cleaning. The policeman asked me if I would like to work for them for a while, I worked with the South Australia police for more than fifteen years. The best part of my police life was making my community strong and proud. I was using my ngangkari (traditional healer) skills at this time too, working with translating, watching, and helping my people – I calmed down the situations.”
