Wednesday 20th August, 2pm to 3pm. Monash Indigenous Centre Library, Building 55 level 2. Clayton Campus. Mickey Akwerre Pengarte Dow Dow was a Northern Arrernte man born at Harry Creek, Central Australia around 1856. Dow Dow had been present when Spencer and Gillen documented Arrernte ceremonies at Alice Springs in the summer of 1896. In the 1930s he produced detailed illustrations in order to explain complex Arrernte beliefs to another budding anthropologist, Olive Muriel Pink. Dow Dow’s career as an ‘informant’ continued when he met the young linguist and ethnographer T.G.H. Strehlow in 1932 and went on to share details of the mythologies and ritual of his traditional lands.
