Gathering of the Gwion People

This is the beginning of the people gathering. All sorts of tribes like you see on the rock art around the Kimberley. Some images have pieces washed away by nature like you see it in the rock art. 

Name: Clarrie Djanghara

Language: Wunambal

Community: Kalumburu


Clarrie was born in Derby, Western Australia, and moved to Kalumburu during missionary times where he grew up and went to school. He was trained as a builder in his community and has worked in the community store. In 1999 he was elected President of Kalumburu Aboriginal Community Council. Clarrie has only recently turned his hand to painting in order to record his culture for the younger generation.
