You know that Midnight Oil band? They came here and did a concert in Warakurna. They were playing near the basketball court. I was a young fella then. We were all dancing. They made a video clip and it was on the TV.

Ken Shepherd was born in the Western Australian goldfields, where his family had moved seeking work, but his father was born at Wapintja, a pinnacle in the middle of a vast area of sand dune country to the north of the Rawlinson Range.
Shepherd settled at Warakurna when his family returned to their country in 1974.
