Anderson, Joe

Aboriginal activist and leader known as King Burraga, who lived at Salt Pan Creek on the Georges River. In 1933 he made a film with Cinesound that was shown around the country, asking for recognition of Aboriginal people and representation in Federal Parliament:

'All the black man wants is representation in federal parliament. There is plenty of fish in the river for us all and land to grow all we want.'
