Driven by senior artists from across the Kimberley the paintings, digital recordings and publications that have become In the Saddle - On the Wall contain important historical and deeply personal accounts of a time when aboriginal people were the back-bone of the Kimberley cattle industry. This was a period characterised by injustice and displacement, new experiences of cultural relations, journeys through Country and a deep sense of pride. It was Aboriginal people's knowledge of their Country, the seasons and stories that shaped it, which enabled the pastoral industry to succeed in this region. As artist and former stockman Patrick Mung Mung remarks, "White men know that we were great in this place."
