Some, including the prime minister, John Howard, resist the suggestion that these children were stolen, and prefer the term "removed"; but "stolen" is certainly the right word to describe the moment, around 1950, when Edna Walker was taken away from her mother, loaded into the back of a truck and transported north to Croker Island.
Ms Walker's first memories are of living on a cattle station in the Northern Territory where George Simpson, the white man who she believed was her father, was the manager. Her mother, Maggie, lived in a nearby camp, in "humpies" - or "tin sheets tied to trees'.
This was the time of forced segregation of children with white fathers and black mothers.The Chief Protector of Aborigines had the right to take any child - especially girls. The theory was that within a few generations Aborigines would be absorbed into white society and die out.
When the police came for little Edna, Simpson confronted them with a gun. Her mother ran off with her into the bush to hide. But still they kept coming:'The last time it happened, I remember this cloud of dust coming towards the station. This vehicle drew up. They just grabbed me and put me in the truck:' Other children were collected on the way and put in a cell overnight. 'Next morning we travelled all day up to Darwin in a truck.'
Ist das nicht zu viel für die 10te Kass
