Aubrey Tigan is a renowned pearl shell carver whose work is informed from his homelands, the islands of the Buccaneer archipelago, a place the missionaries removed him from as a young boy. Aubrey takes his grandchildren on his last journey to their country to try and imprint the stories of the country and his art to the young grandchildren before it is too late.
Kimberley West (Noongar), from Broome, has worked for a number of years as a director and editor with leading Indigenous media production house, Goolarri Media.
