A young Koori girl is abused

Fred Maynard leader of the AAPA, writes to a young Koori girl abused within the Aboriginal apprenticeship system: ‘My heart is filled with regret and disgust. First that you were taken down by those who were supposed to be your help and guide through life. What a wicked conception, what a fallacy. Under the so-called pretence and administration of the Board, government controlled etc. I say deliberately, the whole damnable thing has got to stop and by God's help it shall, make no mistake. No doubt, they are trying to exterminate the Noble and Ancient Race of southern Australia. Away with their damnable insulting methods’. Maynard 2008, p. 1.
