Prince & Pilgrim has recently started working with Aboriginal artists based in the community of Yuendumu in Central Australia, northwest from Alice Springs.
It is a fundamental aim of these artists to increase awareness about Aboriginal culture and to broadly support Indigenous causes. Much of the money made by this group is poured back into its community, helping to improve conditions for the Aboriginal people. Specifically, it has helped to fund a local Childcare Centre and regularly supports Indigenous students studying for a variety of medical and health related degrees at University of NSW.
Each artist tells their own dream story which has been handed down to them for generations. Murdie’s paintings, for example, represent the Maliki, or wild dog dreaming. They tell the story of the Wild Dogs in Murdie's home country of Lajamanu. They travel from camp to camp looking for food that they can steal from the people. The people of the camp can see where the dogs leave their tracks in the sand and people will often find the left over bones as well. This is an important story and belongs to the Namitjinpa/Tjampitjinpa and Nangala/Tjangala skin groups.
