Exhibition Overview

The story of missionaries in the remote Ngaanyatjarra lands is one of mutual respect and relative harmony. The mission being in the heart of the country, at Warburton, meant yarnangu (people) did not have to leave their homelands or abandon cultural obligations. At Warakurna, many artists including Eunice Porter, Judith Chambers, Nancy Jackson and Polly Jackson have childhood memories of the early mission days. The affection many yarnangu had towards the mission is reflected in their work. Tales of specific people and treasured memories indicate the important role many missionaries played in people’s lives.

Emilia Galatis (Manager, Warakurna Artists) with David Brooks (Anthropologist).

We have made available an extended version of this exhibition introduction which explains in more detail the history of when 'The Missionaries Came to Warburton'.
