Summary

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.
