Alec Baker, Peter Mungkuri and Kunmanara (Jimmy) Pompey are three senior artists and respected leaders from Indulkana community on the APY Lands, South Australia.
In their younger years, Mungkuri, Baker and Pompey worked on cattle stations, breaking horses, mustering and branding. In the camp at Welbourn Hill station they coordinated a men’s camp, taught horse riding techniques to the younger men and shared personal stories of life working as stockmen in remote Central Australia from the 1940s to 1960s.
Influenced by their ongoing love for cowboy and western films and country music, they created their own spaghetti western: Never Stop Riding.
Never Stop Riding has all the ingredients of a classic western: a dastardly gold heist; the villain’s face on a wanted poster; three shootouts; and two mobility scooters (the three main characters are well past the age of 70).
I never learned no school. I learned horses, that’s all. Riding horses. — Alec Baker
