Father (Alphonse) told me to go back to the bush and get all my families.

Brandy walked to old Balgo mission as a young man, and then returned to the desert to collect his family. In 1958 he brought them to Billiluna station, where he earned his name branding cattle.

Brandy raised his family in Balgo, but moved to Kiwirrkurra in the 1990s to be closer to his Country. Today he lives in Balgo with his daughters and many grandchildren.
