This is about Gregory John Ugle, a traditional young Nyungar boy with a rich cultural heritage and lifestyle. He is a boy with parents, brothers and sisters who live in a small wheatbelt town of Bencubbin. I was living as a traditional Nyungar in the bush, later adjusting to life in a small country town. I would live in my country with my parents until an Australian Law (The 1905 Act) would impact on my life and the lives of my family and change our lives forever. A Domestic dispute between my two parents was caused by alcohol. My father's imprisonment and my mother's hospitalization would part us for many years to come. My dad was taken by Police and jailed. My brothers and sisters and I were taken by Welfare to another tribal land. Torn from our secure family and taken to a distant unknown place. From the mouths of lowly racist government leaders right up to the Prime Minister's, from the first time of colonization to twenty first century, Aboriginals have suffered at the hands of a racist nation, have been hounded and separated from family for the color of their skin. It is not until the Prime Minister in office was Mr Kevin Rudd that the government gave the apology: FOR THE PAIN, SUFFERING AND HURT OF THESE STOLEN GENERATIONS, THEIR DESCENDENTS AND THEIR FAMILIES LEFT BEHIND, WE SAY SORRY. 13 February 2008. For me as a Yued man, in 2008 I was a child and I did nothing wrong yet I was punished to the full extent of the laws. I am now at peace within my heart; a burden was lifted. And so begins my journey, and my story of being a Stolen Generation.
