Armidale Elder Frank Achibald

Frank Archibald was a forceful advocate for the rights of Aboriginal people. Raised in traditional ways, he only learned to read and write as an adult. Nonetheless he penned sharp replies to attacks made on his people. On one occasion he responded with the following words to a letter which had appeared in the press criticising the behaviour of a section of the Aboriginal community: “I am angry that you wrote this about our people. We can do steady work. Look at the house my sons and sons in- law built with Father Kelly. When there is no work we have to take charity. We use taxis when there is no other transport. Our kids do go to school. And mad-am, you would be dirty too if you only had one tap for the whole community.”
