BiographyHistory

Carol Kendall was adopted into a loving non-Indigenous family at the age of twelve weeks and didn't discover her Aboriginal identity until she was 21. Kendall searched for her birth family through Link-Up and made contact with her large family after many years of indecision and turmoil. Kendall subsequently worked for Link-Up and played an active role in the community.

Kendall's story was recorded by the National Library of Australia for the Bringing Them Home oral history project and appeared in the associated publication Many Voices: Reflections on experiences of Indigenous child separation, edited by Doreen Mellor and Anna Haebich (2002).
