Lloyd Kwilla TVH Exhibition 2011

The day Wangkajunga artist Lloyd Kwilla was born, a tribal leader, healer and great bushman from his Sandy Desert region had died. According to Wangkajunga law, Kwilla therefore inherited both the man’s bush name and the leadership responsibilities that came with it. Now this 31 year-old father of five has been a community leader since the age of 18, dealing with a range of complex and often demanding issues with and for his Wangkajunga (Christmas Creek) community near Halls Creek in the East Kimberley.
