Description

‘Following the Trade Routes’ is a country centred project revitalising critical cultural practices and networks that once brought together Aboriginal groups from three States of Australia. Existing anthropological research recognises a long history of Aboriginal peoples travelling on country, following deeply spiritual song lines and exchanging significant items or tools. Aboriginal Elders with lived experience of the trade routes have been brought together to share their cultural knowledge and to compare it with contemporary practice. This project is empowering the cultural bosses to reinvigorate fundamental and foundational cultural governance systems founded in sovereignty and trade. This presentation will highlight the ongoing significance of cultural processes of exchange and their influence in shaping the linguistic, ceremonial and economic basis of Aboriginal life across the revived trade route between the Western, Central and Eastern Kimberley, Central Northern Territory and the South Australian coast. Presenters will elucidate the history of trading relationships, their contemporary values and future trajectories for a new generation of Indigenous leaders and knowledge custodians in Australia. The impact of Indigenous led and governed research about Indigenous cultural trade and its role in ensuring cultural continuity of this important and continuing part of Australian history and society, will be highlighted.
