A collection of collaborative canvases reflect the clan ownership of land and waterholes by Wangkatjungka artists who lived their early lives on ancestral lands in the Great Sandy Desert. The Canning Stock Route (begun 1906) passed right through their country, and the presence of survey men and stockmen who worked the track were to have a profound impact on the Wangkatjungka people. Many desert people followed the track into the East Kimberley, taking their desert culture and language into the cattle station country of the Fitzroy Valley.
