My name’s Eddie, but my nickname is ‘All of a sudden’. All of sudden, he just turns up! It just went from there.
I come from the Bardi tribe - the People around Ardyaloon. My mum is from Pannawonica - near Karratha. I’ve still got family down there, so I go visit them sometimes. I was born in Broome, and did Primary School there, then moved up the coast to Beagle Bay in 1972, then further up to One Arm Point (Ardyaloon) to be with dad’s family. Ardyaloon is North West of Broome, 220km, maybe more. It’s a small community, between Lombadina and Cape Leveque.
