Acrylic on Canvas

Our culture and way of life is about keeping together. Our connection is linked to our land, sea and Country and we keep our
family roots together. Its a strong Aboriginal way up north at Lockhart River. I think others can relate to this about their
families too


As Indigenous Australians, our way of life goes back over 60,000 years. In my community in Lockhart and within my families, our parents, grand parents, uncles and aunties and elders always kept our families together through our strong traditional cultural laws.

We have to follow certain practices on how we live daily in Country and out of Country and standing strong as families is one of our ways. Our families stand united together for many generations.
