“I was born in Port Hedland. May Chapman is my mother. I went to Strelley school and Warralong school. I stayed at Warralong for a few years and then I went through the law and travelled around to every community, like Jigalong, Punmu and Cotton Creek.
I came back to Warralong and started work, mustering cattle, mechanic work at Strelley, cleaning up community, fixing fence and all that. I used to work at the school, Warralong school, for two years, teaching kids.
I do a little bit of art at Warralong. I paint different to my family, landscapes and all that, dot painting, and you know the White House (Wapa Maya, at Bloodwood Tree in South Hedland))? I used to be painting there too. I got two, three paintings in there.”
