"I was born, on the 17th of June, 1945, to William and Midge Muir, the oldest child in a family of six. As an Aboriginal youngster I lived as a fringe dweller on the outskirts of Mooroopna, by the banks of the Goulburn River, in a tin humpy, like so many of my people at that time. It seemed that most Aboriginal people were unskilled workers in white society, and were employed throughout the area as pickers in orchards, or in tomato or pea paddocks. To most this was a way of life, and survival, but I vowed in later years that this was not for me."
