[Taken from the To Remove and Protect website:]
The Native Administration Act 1936 [Also known as the Aborigines Act Amendment Act 1936] changed the title of Chief Protector to the Commissioner of Native Affairs. The expansive definition given to 'native' extended the reach of the Commissioner's powers. The Commissioner of Native Affairs was made the legal guardian of all legitimate and illegitimate 'native' children to the age of 21 'notwithstanding that the child has a parent or other relative living'. The Native Administration Act 1936 was repealed by Native Welfare Act 1963.
