About me:

I'm Aboriginal and on my Father's Side, Barada Barna, we are from the Stolen Generation. My Grandfather was taken away from Nebo and put on the Reserve in Cherbourg by Salvation Army. Here he was given the name Brown by the superintendant at the time, which is how we ended up with the last name Brown.
