Yiwarra Kuju: The Canning Stock Route

Yiwarra Kuju: the Canning Stock Route is a vision of the Country that was intersected by Canning’s stock route. It is a Country seen through the eyes of Aboriginal artists, and animated by ancestral energies and stories. The exhibition itself is laid out geographically with visitors entering the stock route Country in the south, travelling north and then returning again eventually to the south.

More than an exhibition of Aboriginal art, Yiwarra Kuju is defined by a remarkable collection of oral histories, which vividly bring the culture and history of the region to life. More than 200 oral histories were recorded by the Canning Stock Route Project, mostly in traditional languages, and more than 80 of these were translated by a team of skilled Aboriginal translators led by Ngalangka Nola Taylor and Putuparri Tom Lawford. This rich fund of cultural knowledge, conveyed in the artists’ own words, shaped the broader story of Yiwarra Kuju and brought the extraordinary history of this region into national focus for the first time.

The rich content that has been collected as part of the Project was developed into the award-winning One Road  interactive, multitouch installation. In keeping with the project’s multidisciplinary approach, this interactive display merges artistic, cultural, historical, ecological and scientific data within the interface of Alfred Canning’s iconic hand-drawn map.
