The history of the Canning Stock Route has been well documented from the colonial perspective – accounts of European explorers, drovers, prospectors and law enforcers – but increasingly the Aboriginal history of the track is also being recognised and Aboriginal people are keen to have their story told:
We wanna tell you fellas 'bout things been happening in the past that hasn't been recorded, what old people had in their head. No pencil and paper. The white man history has been told and it's today in the book.
But our history is not there properly. We've got to tell 'em through our paintings. — Clifford Brooks, Wiluna, 2006
