Abstract

This chapter summarizes the current state of rock art research in the Kimberley, Western Australia, which is a globally significant corpus of tens of thousands of rock art, archaeological, ethnographic, and contemporary sites. We present a history of rock art research in the region, discuss linguistic and cultural diversity, across the Kimberley, and outline the development of rock art stylistic sequences and spatial analysis. A new generation of scientific dating of the art and associated
excavations is also harmonized. Aboriginal ontologies and recorded ethnography associated with the rock art are highlighted. We also present land tenure land management under native title and affiliated ranger groups as heritage management
challenges and opportunities.
