Billy Goat Hill (2008)
As a Luritja/Aranda man, a traditional elder of Mutitjulu and born in Alice Springs, Vincent knows his “Country” intimately. Part of the caterpillar Dreaming, this artwork is about Akeyulerre (Billy Goat Hill).
Growing up as a stockman and station hand, Vincent came to know his country intimately. His grandfather’s showed him the landscape and told him the stories, associated with his country and Alice Springs, where he became the Aboriginal historian of the area. His grandmother’s showed him bush foods and bush medicine for both Luritja and Aranda country. It was in his teens when working as a cattleman, that the tourism industry was in its infancy and Vincent began working as a tour guide. He later became a very popular guide at Kings Canyon, a ranger at Uluru/Kata Juta National Park and later a specialist guide at Alice Springs Desert Park.
