Project Details

Project Description

The project concerns maritime heritage and management of the land/sea interface by the yanyuwa, an indigenous group in the gulf of Carpentaria, Northern Territory. A joint anthropological/archaelogical project, it textually and visually records and represents Yanyuwa engagements with their seascape - both natural features and cultutrally contrsucted features (e.g. rock-art site). This will identify the character of a seascape from an indigenous perspective, a vital step in informing Australian normative understandings of the sea, programs of management and sustainable engagements with northern coastlines.
