The old people always say, the land don’t belong to us, we belong to the land

The battle by the Indigenous people of the Pilbara region in Western Australia to preserve 50,000- year-old rock art sites and sacred cultural heritage from the ravages of a booming mining industry.
The Burrup Peninsula (or Murujuga), in the Pilbara region, holds the largest concentration of rock art in the world, dating back over 50,000 years.
An ancient landscape so sacred that some parts shouldn’t be looked upon at all, except by Traditional Owners.

Director, Tyson Mowarin shows how he and the people of the Pilbara are fighting back, by documenting the rock art, recording sacred sites and battling to get their unique cultural heritage recognised, recorded and celebrated.
