This clip shows Lowitja O'Donoghue talking about her name and about being removed from her mother at the age of two, the youngest child in her family. She says that Lois, the name she went by when she was younger, was a biblical name that had been given to her by the missionaries after she was removed from her mother. As an adult, she changed her name back to Lowitja. She says that O'Donoghue was her father's surname and that she never met him. He had emigrated from Ireland to Australia, where he became a station manager. This clip is an excerpt from 'Lowitja O'Donoghue' (26 min), an episode of 'Australian biography' series 3, produced in 1994.
