Haasts Bluff Aboriginal Art

Haasts Bluff, also known as Ikuntji, is located in the Central Desert 223 km north west of Alice Springs, at the site near the rocky outcrop named Haasts Bluff by the explorer Ernest Giles during his expedition in 1872. Made up of  Aboriginal groups from Luritja, Western Arrernte, and Pintupi people of the Central Western Desert, the community was established in 1946 as a Lutheran mission.

Prior to that time there had been a permanent camp in the area from 1935, with the Lutheran church helping in the provision of rations. Some Aboriginal people came to Haasts Bluff in search of a regular supply of food and water, others were forced there under the government program of assimilation. The current estimated population is about 150 residents.

The Ikuntji Art centre was opened in 1992, and has had varying success marketing local Aboriginal art over the years. Well known Aboriginal artists who were born or raised in the community include Makinti Napanangka, Ngoia Pollard, Turkey Tolson Tjupurrula, Daisy Jugadai Napaltjarri and Eileen Napaltjarri.
