Adrian Brown, Ngunnawal man who lives in Canberra, talks about his connection to his country and culture. The National Museum has purchased some of Adrian’s artworks, including clap sticks and a painting. The clap sticks represent song and story, and the bringing together of people; while the painting reveals the learning grounds where his father, Carl Brown, taught him to be a young Aboriginal murunj (man).
