How as a non-Aboriginal professor, do I supervise an Elder and Custodian who is researching her Country? This supervisory relationship challenges me to continually think through my positionality. This might sound unusual; yet I hope it conveys some sense of the extent and depth of Aboriginal knowledges, of the demands of the learning processes, of the importance of not knowing, of listening, and of how the journey shapes us and how this shaping is a necessity.

Albert Namatjira Elea is his birth name was the first Aboriginal person to become an internationally renowned artist. He always enjoyed painting whilst he was growing up, but it was not until aged 32 years that he began to paint seriously.
A man named Rex Battarbee taught Namatjira a lot about the skill of painting, and Namatjira showed Rex some of the best places to paint in Australia. Namatjira's art was very different to traditional Aboriginal art. His first exhibition went on show in in Melbourne, where his paintings sold out. His success continued and his paintings became very valuable. Although he had become very successful and made a great deal of money, Namatjira still had to follow the strict laws placed on Aboriginal people during that time. He was not allowed to buy a home or any land, and could not rent a property.
In , Namatjira became the first Aboriginal person to become an Australian citizen. His art and his life made governments aware of how Aboriginal people were being treated in Australia during that period. Emily Kame Kngwarreye is one of Australia's most significant contemporary Aboriginal artists.

Emily was born at the beginning of the 20th century and grew up in a remote desert area known as Utopia, kilometres north-east of Alice Springs, distant from the art world that sought her work. Although Emily began to paint late in her life she was a prolific artist who often worked at a pace that belied her advanced age. It is estimated that she produced more than 3, paintings in the course of her 8-year painting career--an average of one painting per day.
For virtually two-thirds of her life she had only sporadic contact with the outside world. It was not until she was about 80 that she became, almost overnight, an artist of national and international standing. She received the Australian Artist's Creative Fellowship award in Her remarkable work was inspired by her cultural life as an Anmatyerre elder, and her lifelong custodianship of the women's Dreaming sites in her clan country, Alhalkere.
