Background to ‘Cloud and Fire’
Short biography: I was born in Darwin, Northern Territory of Australia in 1950. My first eight years was in an Aboriginal mission called Retta Dixon Home. Before I was 12 years of age I had had three changes to my surname through fostering and adoption near Sydney, but I am happy with my present last name of Keith Charles Truscott. My traditional Aboriginal ties are with the Antakarinyin people of Northern South Australia. My mother was “stolen” from her language and country as a child. I had to go back and re-learn my language. Whilst living in New South Wales I had variety of jobs from brickies’ labourer, farm-labourer, to newspaper clerk. When I moved to Western Australia in 1975, I have been mainly a university academic and pastor of an Indigenous church in Perth, Western Australia. My dream is to see the Indigenous church learn, grow and mature in the Lordship of Christ in their lives. I am married to Stephanie and have three children, fifteen grandchildren and two great grandchildren. In 2018 I would have been an Indigenous Pastor in Perth for the last 25 years.
