Reggie Uluru

Maruku Arts and Crafts

Reggie Uluru is tjilpi Yankuntjatjara, a Yankuntjatjara speaking senior Aboriginal man from the Central Desert of Australia. Born and raised in the bush, he spent much of his working life as a stockman in the northern lands of South Australia before returning to his father’s country, Uluru. As a senior custodian, he took part in the official handback of his lands by the Australian Federal Government in 1985. He then worked as a ranger in the jointly managed Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park before becoming a tour guide with Anangu Tours. He has taught countless visitors his ancestral lore and is a senior singer for ceremony at Uluru.

He now lives in the Nganampa Ngura Mutitjulunya (Mutitjulu Aged Care) and has only recently taken up painting with Maruku and Walkatjara Arts.
