Summary

This community publication was developed to tell the story of a remote communities deceased cultural leader, Queenie McKenzie. Queenie was an Australian Aboriginal woman, an exceptional cultural teacher, elder and internationally recognised artist. Showcases Queenie's life and story, told frequently with her own words and through the use of her stunning visual story telling that she had practiced for many years. Queenie used her artistic works to teach others about her vibrant culture and her life, and as a way to inspire interest in the special and dynamic relationship she and her people have with land. Queenie was one of Australia's most collectable Aboriginal contemporary artists. Her style was defined by her unique use of ochres, particularly the rare pink tones that she developed herself.
