Kim Akerman has been involved in Australian
Indigenous issues for more than three
decades. As well as working as an
anthropologist in the WA State Public Service
he has served with two Land Councils and
been employed as a curator in three
museums. At present he is a member of the
Research advisory Council of the Australian
Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait
Islander Studies. Kim has written extensively
on many aspects of Indigenous art and
material culture.

Kim will provide an introduction and some
insights into the art of the late Butcher Joe
Nangan, Nyikina Lawman, Artist and
Chronicler of indigenous history in the South
West Kimberley. Butcher Joe, from the turn of
the 20th century until his death in January
1989, lived on the Dampierland Peninsula, the
country between the Fitzroy River and Broome
and finally in Broome itself. In his lifetime Joe
produced an astonishing record on paper and
pearl shell, of the history and cosmology of the
lands and people he was most familiar with.
