Warakurna Community

You often hear jokes about ‘the end of the World’, in Australia we may say ‘Outback’ or the other side of the ‘Blackstump’, one might even say, ‘It’s not the end of the world… but you can see it from there’, there just words, Google Maps will allow you to see where they actually live (back up the map a little to appreciate), and have possibly done so for over 60,000 years, going back to when central Australia was not quite so arid.

They call it ‘Primitive Art’, more words that somehow don’t quite measure up, these painting may tell a story, give a tribal history… or they could in fact be maps describing in detail where to find water.

    I would like to say hello to Molly Yates,Ivan Shepard,Peter Lewis Ernest Bennett
    Tommy Mitchell and their families and all the Warakurna mob whom I love and miss dearly.
    I live in New Brunswick Canada now and if any of you get to Canada I can take you hunting for bear,moose or deer, right in my back yard.
    I have some of your paintings and photos around my house, so i think of you and pray for you almost daily.
    May God bless all the people living in communities on Central lands and especially the Warakurna Mob.
    Love Shawn
