Gloria Ardler - "My father wasn't allowed on the mission"

Auntie Gloria Ardler, speaking in 2000, recalls: "My father... couldn’t come and see us when we were on the [La Perouse] mission. He wasn’t married to my mother but he was Aboriginal. He wasn’t allowed to come in there. He had a little tent outside the fence". Hinkson and Harris, Aboriginal Sydney, p 112.
