AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Berndt Museum's exhibition Little paintings, big stories: gossip songs of Western Arnhem Land, researched and curated by the Berndt Museum's Archivist Eve Chaloupka and Associate Registrar Kelly Rowe, was held at The University of Western Australia from June through to December 2013. This memorable body of work, presented as an audiovisual experience to the public for the first time, would not have been possible without the support of the Warruwi community members - let alone the generosity, insight and foresight of their forebears, the Mawng and Kunwinjku storytellers, composers, performers and artists of South Goulburn Island (Warruwi) and the nearby mainland - who worked with Catherine and Ronald Berndt during their visits to the Methodist Overseas Mission settlement between 1947 and1964.'

    'Welcome to the first edition of Australian Aboriginal Studies for 2015. A new year has brought with it some changes to the journal, with the departure of Jakelin Troy, who has been the Editor for the past three years, and her Assistant Editor, Sally McNicol. To begin, we acknowledge the excellent work of both women. Jaky, who had a long association with AIATSIS in many guises, including most recently as a Director of Research, was the first Aboriginal woman to be general editor of Australian Aboriginal Studies. Readers who are aware of the work and dedication required to publish a journal of this quality will understand the debt we owe Jaky and Sally. We thank them for their work on this and earlier editions.'   (Editorial introduction)
