Stolen generation survivor dies – Aboriginal/Australia


A 107-year-old member of the stolen generation has died only months after she was finally reunited with members of her original Kimberley people in Western Australia’s far north. Belinda Dann was only six or seven years old when she was taken from her mother and family in Nykina Aboriginal country on a cattle station near Derby early last century. She and several of her sisters were taken by horse and cart to Beagle Bay Mission, north of Broome, run by the Catholic St John of God sisters.
