Harold is a 'boss man' of Ilkawerne country, south of the Utopia Region. In Dec 2000/Jan 2001, Mbantua Gallery exhibited for the first time Atyetyart stories representing the men from this area. Harold is the main story teller of Atyetyart stories - stories about the 'olden day people', he says. These stories were passed down to him by his father. Harold says the passing of stories through the generations keeps the stories alive and the country strong.

Description

Harold paints the story of the wild pigeon, also known as arekwarr or arwekarr in the Anmatyerre language and it is connected to the ahakeye story. The ahakeye, called wild plum in English by Harold, is also known as the native currant or citrus (canthium attenuatum). These are both very important stories for Harold that belong to his country, Ilkawerne (El-go-an-na) . These stories, their songs, dances and symbols have been passed down to Harold from his father.
