Uncle Walter Eatts

In this episode, we meet Uncle Walter Eatts. Uncle Walter is the child of a stolen generation mother from the Kimberley and a white father from Busselton. His parents fell in love at Beagle Bay Mission near Broome and fled to Queensland to avoid native welfare.
Uncle Walter grew up not knowing his heritage or culture, as he says - not white, not black, not wanted. But all that changed when he met the love of his life, proud Ballardong Noongar yorga Doolann Leisha Eatts - she not only helped him unlock the secrets of his past, Uncle Walter says she saved his life.
