Shorty Jangala Robertson

Shorty Jangala Robertson was born circa 1930’s at Jila (Chilla Well). A large soakage clay pan near Yuendumu, approx 300kms north west of Alice Springs in Central Australia.

He lived a nomadic with his family and they travelled vast distances across desert country. His childhood memories consist of stories associated with the Coniston Massacre of Aboriginal people. Shorty had virtually no contact with white people during his youth but remembers leaving Jila for Mt Theo 'to hide' from being shot. His father died at Mt Theo and then with his mother he moved to the new settlement of Yuendumu.

Shorty Jangala Robertson uses strong colour of colour to depict his Dreamings, which include Ngapa (Water), Watiyawarnu (Acacia), Yankirri (Emu) and Pamapardu (Flying Ant). He continued to live at Yuendumu with his family until his passing in 2014.
