Topsy Smith was a member of the Aranda Tribe of Alice Springs. When Topsy’s Welsh miner husband died in the Arltunga Goldfields, she travelled by foot the 100 km to Alice Springs. Topsy, though pregnant, made the trip with her seven children and a herd of goats. When she arrived, the local police office allowed her to live in a tin shed that because known as ‘The Bungalow’. Later it became a school for part-white Aboriginal children. Topsy helped to manage the school. She dedicated her life to caring for all the children as her own securing education, health and sanitation improvements. Topsy spent the rest of life in Alice Springs with her extended family and died in 1960.
