Pearl Shell Other events...
For over 20,000 years people have been harvesting the large and lustrous shell of the Pinctada maxima pearl oyster from along WAs northern shores.

Broome-based anthropologist and curator Sarah Yus research has contributed to a wider understanding of the role of Aboriginal and Asian people in pearling history.

Join her as she discusses some of the wider cultural and economic threads of the pearling tradition and their relationship to Saltwater Country.
