  • Blind Moses ……impressed like no other man !
    Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

    URAIAKURAIA, MOSES TJALKABOTA, (‘BLIND MOSES’) Son of Tjeta of the ‘Tnurangatja’ (witchetty grub) totem, and Araniljilka, of the Western Aranda tribe, Moses was about eight years old when Lutheran missionaries founded Hermannsburg in 1877. One of the first school pupils, Moses enjoyed singing hymns and hearing Bible stories which led into learning the rudiments of reading and writing. Impressed by this new teaching, he passed on his knowledge to others until forbidden to do so because of conflict with traditional beliefs. He was withdrawn from school, but was later allowed to return to his lessons. With four others, he was baptised on 26 Dec 1890.

    Humble yet fearless, tireless and faithful. When he disapproved of something, ‘he could be very definite and outspoken, even blunt’, but his sincerity deflected offence. He was widely respected, and ‘his kindly disposition won him friends among the white people as well as among his own Aranda’ (Albrecht, 1954). Moses married Sophie (Sofia) in 1903. They had ten children, but he outlived them all, many dying during the severe drought in the late 1920s. He was survived by Sophie and three grandchildren.

    Alice Springs based botanist Peter Latz  shares his personal memories of a remarkable man.
