The gallery exhibition presented some of the same traditional knowledge and technologies used today by the Burarra ('bur-ah-da') people of the central north Arnhem Land region of Australia.

This knowledge includes a detailed understanding of the natural world and how to live in it. It provides an intricate picture of the relationships that link people, all living things, the weather systems and the land.
