Reconnecting the Yaghan community to cultural belongings 90 years on

Rebecca Carland is Senior Curator, History of Collections and Scientific Art at Museums Victoria, working with objects, images and specimens to explore narratives of discovery, Indigenous knowledge systems, colonial contact and notions of nature/conservation.

Yaghan Elders including President David Alday, Julia González, Martín González Calderón and Veronica and Violeta Balfor are leading this project, along with independent curator and Museums Victoria Honorary Associate, Camila Marambio, working with Rebecca Carland.

The curators and community Elders are grateful for the extraordinary support of Alberto Serrano, Director, Museo Antropológico Martín Gusinde, Navarino, Chile.
