Birth Place: Sydney Year of Birth: 1965
Background: Dale is a renowned Aboriginal Artist, born in Sydney in 1965 and is connected to Ngardi language group in the Roper River region of East Arnhem Land through his fathers people and has cultural ties with the Wiradjuri tribe of NSW through his mother’s people from the Talbragar people, Dubbo
The Roper River Mission was established in 1908 and became a focal food and shelter point for people within a radius of several hundred kilometres whose traditional way of life had been severely disrupted. In 1968 the mission reverted to Aboriginal control and its name changed to Ngukurr. His grandfather the late Harry Huddleston was a traditional owner from Burrungu, also known as the Ruin City. Dales paintings are based on the custodial country and the stories associated with it. They depict in the traditional Raark or crosshatch design, totems and spirits relating to real life activities such as hunting, fishing, singing and dancing. These images form the teachings of the ancestors on survival and social infrastructure. His grandparents and father were moved from Groote Eylandt after the bombing of Darwin 1941 to Mulogoa, near Warragamba Dam. This was part of the government’s policy in forcing assimilation of Aboriginal people into mainstream society. His grand mother Florence Croft was taken as a baby from her birthplace in the Tanami desert of Central Australia and adopted into Ngardi way of life. For this reason Dale has a connection to his Grandmother, Lily Nangala’s dreamings.
