Northern Goldfields Indigenous culture

Tjukurba Art Gallery, WilunaBe enchanted by the vibrant Indigenous art and culture in Western Australia’s Northern Goldfields. To the Indigenous ancestors who roamed the land for many thousands of years, this harsh, unforgiving and barren outback landscape is a land of plenty. Their art, song and dance, passed down from generation to generation, tell the story of the animals that shaped the physical features of the outback landscape to provide food, water and shelter.

Wiluna honours the Last of the Nomads

Warri (1909-1979) and Yatungka (1917-1979) were believed to be the last of the Mandildjara tribe and were perhaps Australia’s last desert nomads leading the traditional Indigenous lifestyle. Long after the Mandildjara people (known also as Martu) had gravitated to urban settlements this couple survived for decades on their own, hunting and eating native fruits.  You can find out more about their incredible story by visiting the Wiluna page of this site.
