‘Kirrenderri, Heart of the Channel Country’ – Temporary Exhibition Cairns Musuem at Cairns Museum

The University of Queensland Anthropology Museum in collaboration with Mithaka people of Channel Country present Kirrenderri, a visually striking and narrative rich exhibition chronicling extraordinary stories from one of the most remote locations at the very heart of Australia.

 

Channel Country is renowned as an intersection for Aboriginal trade networks that connect the continent. Revelations of the age and scale of sites in this landscape are evocative and lead to a reimagining of the deep history of this country.

 

The exhibition highlights stories from Indigenous perspectives and is comprised of rarely seen collection artefacts, historic and contemporary photographs, letters, maps, archaeological discoveries, and rare interviews exploring the cultural and aesthetic riches of the Mithaka region of Channel Country.

 

Exhibition runs: Friday 15th March to Saturday 22 June
