Nada ( Tjigilia) Rawlins Australian, Wangkajunga, b. 1936

Nada says, "I was born in the desert in the bush. My mother never put me in a blanket. I never saw my father. We walked from the desert along the Canning Stock Route. We walked through Billiluna. One kartiya (whiteman) called Len Brown picked us up early in the morning in a truck. He took us to Moola Bulla. I had a sore on my arm and they took me to the clinic. They gave me lots of needles. When my sore was better, I lived with my family at Moola Bulla. Then we walked alongside the river to Christmas Creek. We walked, we had no motorcar. We carried our swags on our head."
