Daisy Bates and the Watjala Kids


Daisy Bates and the Watjala Kids

Born of an Aboriginal mother of the Antikirinya language group and a white father, Martha Unganpari Edwards was therefore a ‘watjala kid’.

In her long years with the people at Ooldea siding and later at Wynbring on the East-West railway line, Daisy Bates made it clear that such liaisons, and the children resulting from them, were offensive to her.

As her story shows, however, Martha was one child who didn’t let Mrs Bates’s resultant behaviour go unchallenged.
