Biography   Bill Whiskey Tjapaltjarri


Bill Whiskey's country lies to the north of Kata Tjuta (the Olgas), hidden in some of the most arid and uncompromising land on the continent. Long before his birth, Whiskey's father and grandfather would have become aware of the passage of a strange company through their land.  While the explorer Ernest Giles saw only footprints he reported the 'natives were about' for they were 'burning, burning, ever burning', (1) no doubt signaling the alien presence of the party and their packhorses.  Giles noted the Pitjantjatjara 'perseveringly shunned us' fortunately for them, as it was the explorer's intention to 'catch a native' and 'walk him off alongside my horse until he took me to water'.
