John Mukky Burke was born in Narrandera in 1946 and his mother was the daughter of a resident of WARANGESDA MISSION at Darlington Point NSW. His father was of Irish heritage. Because of his fair skin, identification as Wiradjuri has been a long time battle. Because of his position on the sexual spectrum he likewise has taken ages to be comfortable with what is basically not a clearly binary situation. Both ethnicity and sexuality are arguably among the most fraught dimensions humans have to deal with. Mukky dearly hopes this book will communicate to many persons and indeed their many selves.
