Kitty admitted to Parramatta Native Institute

Kitty is admitted to Parramatta Native Institution in 1814 at five years, of the Cannemegal (Warmuli) clan. An Aboriginal sailor, when asked why he preferred to rejoin his own people, said, when you keep me company, or when any white man or woman keep me company? White men will marry white men, but no white woman will have me; then why wish me to keep away from my own people, when no other will look upon me? (Sydney Gazette, 1/1/1814, in Brook, p. 10.)
