Filmed in Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory of Australia, Knowledge, Painting and Country is the third film in a series about the culture of Western Arnhem Land. This film takes us on a journey to meet two of the region's most highly respected elders. We should all listen carefully.
Part Three: Knowledge, Painting and Country
Aboriginal society respects its elders as the guardians of cultural knowledge and law. Community elders are important role models and educators and as the custodians of Aboriginal culture and lands, their responsibilities include passing on the stories and techniques of painting to younger generations of Aboriginal people. This passing on of knowledge has helped Aboriginal people retain a deep respect and understanding for the country and the nature that surrounds them.
PLEASE NOTE: This film contains the names and images of Aboriginal people now deceased.
