This is why I work in museums. It’s been such a special few days working with Arrernte men... our collections tonight are still ringing with song. The museum cares for some of the most important and treasured Arrernte cultural material: so we are embarking on a new relationship with traditional owners to explore the meaning and responsibilities of that custodianship. Pictured here are Mark Inkamala, Lofty Kalkarintja, Shaun Angeles, Alan Drover (seated), and Benedict Stevens . They are standing in front of the hole cut out of the first Aboriginal Flag to make way for the yellow sun. .
