Summary

What can a collection of drawings reveal about their makers?

Crayon drawings collected by anthropologists provide an illuminating prism through which to explore how the Warlpiri people of Central Australia have seen their place in the world and have been seen by others.

In a lucid style Remembering the Future tracks the return to communities of an important collection, six decades after they were made.

Discussions with many people, journeys to places and archival research build a compelling account of the colonial and contemporary circumstances of Warlpiri lives.
