Wanda was born in Woorabinda in 1946. Her family had been moved from Cape Bedford and interned at Wooribinda Settlement (west of Rockhampton) during WW2. The Australian Government considered the Lutheran Missions in Cape York a threat to national security. After the war, Wanda and her family were moved back to a new settlement in Hope Valley called Hopevale.
Wanda’s totems are the Thuka (Goanna) on her father’s side and the Waandarr (White Cockatoo), mother’s side. She is a fluent Guugu Yimithirr speaker and important elder for the Nugal Warra clan group.
