About The Artists

“We’re in the middle. And these ones, their Country is next to us. We’re all doing the same, we’re all acting as one. One tjina [footprint].”

Muuki Taylor as translated by Heather Samson, Martumili Artists

About the Art Centres

“It’s about the importance of what our art means to us, to show where we come from and to show our younger generation where we come from and what we do and the right way to do things to keep that culture going, to pass that culture on.”

Kimberley McKie, Spinifex Hill Studio

Cheeditha Art Group

Cheeditha is a small Aboriginal community not far from Yirramagardu (Ieramugadu, Roebourne) in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. It was established in the 1970s by a group of Elders who camped in the old woolshed buildings of Mt Welcome Station, just south of Roebourne. In 1985, with the assistance of the Western Australian Government, houses were built and the community has grown to around 60 people.
