Walmadany – James Price  Point

Guest Presenter: Deborah Wall OAM

Aboriginal people  in Broome prefer to refer to this place as Walmadany-James Price  Point

“Over emphasis on integration into economic markets results in  dividing Indigenous families and groups and undermines the integrity of the  Aboriginal domain. I use as a case study Indigenous effort to protect heritage  sites through the Lurujarri Heritage Trail in the Kimberley. I argue that the  struggle to represent the songline and the song cycle to protect heritage sites  at Walmadany-James Price Point in West Kimberley, Western Australia manifests  tensions between continuity and change.”

Deborah Wall  OAM,PhD Candidate, Institute for Culture  and Society, University of Western Sydney,  WRN
