Aunty Madge Bowen

Madge was born in Yarrabah in 1946. Her parents were both stolen from their families as children and taken to Yarrabah mission.

Madge’s mum Myrtle’s language is Western Kuku Yalanji, and country is Bulgan Warra (Kings Plain, south of Cook Town). Her dad Nolan’s country is up around Maytown, north of Laura.

Madge’s mother died when she was 6, so she was sent to HopeVale to live with her mum’s brothers (who were also stolen from their family as kids and sent to Cape Bedford Mission, which became HopeVale).
