Tom Barker

Its been over 10 years now that we have been getting amazing handcrafted traditional artefacts from Woganurra – Tom Barker, from the Murrawarri tribe in North West NSW. Tom learnt the traditional way to make returning boomerangs, clapsticks, bullroarers and weapons from his dad Roy Barker.

Tom’s mum and dad, June and Roy held a great Indigenous museum “Goondee Keeping Place” in Lightning Ridge for many decades and now with their passing Tom and his sister are keeping the museum alive and sharing their culture.
