The Barunga Statement Exhibition
In 1988, Aboriginal leaders Galarrwuy Yunupingu AM and Wenten Rubuntja AO presented the then Prime Minister, the Honourable Bob Hawke AC, with a painted petition, the Barunga Statement. The Statement is a historic declaration of self-determination and the celebration of Aboriginal culture, which continues to be of relevance today.
