Brewarrina / Hunters & Gatherers #1, 2018


This story is from my Country, the Brewarrina region in New South Wales.

I wish to acknowledge the elders both past and Present, by listing the traditional names and Histories, of the areas surrounding Brewarrina as a means of identifying my birthright. Baranbinja, Muruwarri, Weilwan, Ngemba, Kamilaroi, Gamilaroi and Ngiyampaa. My journey and research has allowed me to bring together tribal names and family knowledge shared for centuries between my ancestors. Stories about how and where we came from before life, as we know it today.

Ralph Rogers: Byamee, Brewarrina exhibition, 8th April – 17 May 2019, Deakin University Downtown Gallery

This artwork will be available for collection after 17th May.
