Northern Australia is one of the last places on earth where rock art is still a living part of indigenous culture. For the last ten years, David Lee has studied with Yidumduma Bill Harney, the last fully initiated Wardaman man, and senior custodian of his people’s Country, Songs, and Stories. Together they have documented forty-seven of the rock art sites in Wardaman Country, and all of Yidumduma’s knowledge about them. This knowledge provides many insights into how rock art functioned in the daily and ceremonial lives of early peoples.
