It’s Australia Day and this is Albert Namatjira’s House. He built it by hand here near Hermannsburg (Ntaria) NT. Albert was a genius watercolourist and his paintings made him famous around the world. He met the Queen. Albert Namatjira was a celebrity, but not always a comfortable one. It was always a relief for him to leave the big smoke and return to his desert home. Success brought money – and Albert planned to use it to secure a future for his family. He wanted to lease a cattle station – but as an Aborigine he wasn’t allowed.
Next he tried to build a house in Alice Springs. It was a strange situation. Here was a man, heralded as a top artist, treated like a celebrity and yet not even allowed to own land. “He was definitely the beginning of a recognition of Aboriginal people by white Australia.” Charles Perkins.
Public outrage at Albert’s predicament pushed the government to grant him and his wife full citizenship in 1957. This meant they could vote, enter a hotel and build a house anywhere they chose. It took ten years for the government to grant similar rights to the rest of the Aboriginal population.
As a citizen Albert Namatjira could now also buy alcohol. In keeping with Aboriginal custom, Albert’s friends expected him to share any alcohol he bought. But in doing this he broke white man’s laws. In 1958, police charged Albert with supplying alcohol to Aboriginal people. He denied the charge, but the court didn’t believe him. After two months in prison, Albert emerged a free, but broken man. He had lost his will to paint, and to live. Albert Namatjira died in 1959. He was just fifty-seven years old. #yourownhistory #alwayswasalwayswillbe🖤💛❤️

Jim, Consider if WWII had gone a little differently. If Japan had prevailed & their invasion had succeeded. Would Australians be happy to celebrate on the anniversary of the bombing of Darwin? I am not against an 'Australia Day' per se, but I do object to it being held on a day of such significant sorrow for our Indigenous brothers & sisters. Respect should not have to be so hard fought for. Respect costs nothing. What a notable gesture it would be in the healing of our country, if non-Indigenous Australia could simply say, 'We acknowledge, we understand & we will not disrespect you anymore.' My family will not be celebrating, today. We will however, reflect on our own, true history 🖤💛❤️

I watched Michael Moore’s documentary Who to Invade Next last night and it was very interesting that the Germans teach their kids all about the holocaust. They don’t white wash their history like both us and the Americans have done.

At the grave site a couple of weeks ago. Moving.

Thanks for sharing Jim, funny how I never learnt that at school !

I am extremely privileged to reside in this amazing land and as a passport holder true to my nationality which is not Australian I am humbled that this land has given me opportunity. Such as working for 10 Years with Yothu Yindi. When asked why I have not become a Australian citizen my response is when Australia creates a fair treaty with its first people then and only then if permitted will I consider changing my nationality. It is the right thing to do. Please respect all peoples especially the custodians of this great continent. Munmuk. Don't lie don't steal don't cheat. B.safe B.well. B you.

And his family still don’t get the royalties to his artwork, according to a documentary I saw late last year

Thank you for sharing Mr. Namatjira's story. As an American, what little I knew of him was through your music. Now, I have discovered his art as well. As always, you are a cultural ambassador!

That’s a sad story. Times have changed thank goodness but for many they just didn’t realise how bad alcohol would be for them and their communities.

Why is it so difficult to say sorry

I knew that story but am grateful for the share. We need reminders of these stories... often.

Hardship and tragedy for Namatjira. Mightily sad. But his legacy is towering.

We have so much to answer for. The damage we have and still continue to do.

I studied Albert for year 12 art as my major white man took his soul sold his art overseas white man stole his soul died a broken man happy Australia day

Thanks as always for sharing a moving and relevant story on Australia Day. 🖤💛❤️

Thanks for sharing Jim x

A good read, thanks Jim !

Happy Australia day Jim.x

Thanks for sharing this story

So glad to see it is still standing..., was inspired by his paintings as a young girl and felt blessed to visit this house many years ago ❤️

In your own house looking out Thanks for sharing

Thanks for sharing Jim. As Tony Jackson commented earlier, - it is strange how so many people were never taught in school, of Alberts plight, yet he was a true hero in a way...a passive way...for his indigenous peoples...leading the way to establish rights and equality to a degree.. As far as Australia day goes, i will never feel we deserve to celebrate it properly until the date has been changed to a date of mutual agreement, and our flag is rid of the union jack in the corner and replaced with the Aboriginal Sun. ( the ochre circle with twin rings of white daubs) This should be the true flag of our nation...

Thanks for writing this, Jim.

Died from heart attack & pneumonia but don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story ,was a great artist & have always admired his paintings

Tragic, have we learned anything since then? I sometime wonder! Thanks for sharing Jim

What an interesting, insightful story albeit a sad one ☹️ Thanks for sharing Jim.

With Virtual Reality Artist Daryl Rogers and audio boffin Troy Merritt @ Takanya Athropecene Blues environmental Virtual Reality piece. I did the soundscape. It’s a 4 channel experience that changes sound as you move your head through 360 degrees. Grab a VR headset and be transported into the midst of that great Tassie wilderness, the Tarkine—the second biggest cool temperate rainforest on the planet, now facing possible destruction. I was blown out by the reality of this piece so much I had to hold onto a table! Extraordinary. If you’re down at MONA FOMA in Launceston this weekend check it out, it’s an amazing head trip.
