Dale has spent many years of his life retracing those steps and learning the stories of his ancestors to be able to share this knowledge with the future generations.
In recent years Dale has taken his art practice to the area of children’s services. He has worked with young people who come into contact with the Northern Territory’s children’s welfare services, inspiring them to reconnect with their ancestry and feel confident in their identity.
