David Morgan arrived at Milingimbi in 1972 as the community’s first dedicated Art and Craft Advisor. In 1974 he moved to the school staff as the Literature Production Supervisor in the School’s bilingual program. It was during that time that he and the then Principal David McClay compiled the Milingimbi Educational and Cultural Association (MECA) Collection.
David will discuss the formation and intent of the MECA Collection, its removal from Milingimbi in the early 1980s and the protracted legal dispute that restored the collection to Yolngu owners in 2001.
