0 Titles
Edward Warrigal Anderson was born in 1948. As was the custom with his mother’s people, he was named Warrigal after a dingo that witnessed his birth on the ground in the Wimmera district of Victoria. At the age of ten, he fled from his home in Moonee Ponds to avoid capture by government officers. He never saw his mother again. His life has taken him all over Australia and New Zealand, working as a drover, meatworker, commercial fisherman and crane operator. In 1982 he settled in Katherine. He began writing A Warrigal’s Way (winner of the 1995 David Unaipon award for unpublished Indigenous writing) in the hope of reuniting with his older sister, who he had not seen for more than 40 years. Edward Warrigal Anderson died in 2000.
