Summary
  • "This one bush tucker. Walmajarri people were living on this bush tucker. The old people used to collect them and dry in the sun. The seeds from this plant (Mungily/​Mungilypa) can be dried, washed to remove salty taste and rolled into damper and cooked. This was food for our ancestors." [Veronica Lulu] See painting IR 5004.0059 by the same artist for more information on Mungily.
  • A brown linen square canvas covered with multilayered small dots in gold, lemon, red, orange, brown and green on a black background. On the right edge of the painting is the text ' VL/​162/​PAR'. The left side has the text '45 x 45cm', and '4', while '18 x 18' is written along the bottom edge. On the back of the canvas is a stamp and written text which reads 'Cat # /​ 162 /​ form. /​ The /​ Canning /​ Stock /​ Route /​ Project. /​ VERONICA LULU /​ PARAKU IPA.
  • The Canning Stock Route collection is comprised of 125 works and includes paintings, drawings, baskets, boomerangs, coolamons, headdresses, carved figures and shields. The Canning Stock Route is a no-longer-used cattle droving route that traverses the Great Sandy and Gibson Deserts of central Western Australia. Comprised of 48 wells along an 1800 kilometres stretch of track, the route links Wiluna in the south with Sturt Creek in the north and traverses the traditional lands of nine Aboriginal language groups. The route was founded in 1905 when Alfred Canning was commissioned to investigate a route suitable for the droving of 500 head of cattle, with water sources spaced at intervals of no more than one day's walk apart. Although Canning's map records observations of the land and water resources, it makes no mention of Indigenous places and their associated meanings which the route traversed. This collection, composed of 'painting stories', sculptural works and oral histories, re-dresses Canning's omission and records the impact of the stock route on Indigenous lives and country. A six week journey with traditional owners held in July and August of 2007 inspired the artworks, many of which were produced during the journey, and provided an opportunity for more than 70 senior and emerging artists to reconnect with traditional lands..
