Rick has been performing fire-making and smoking ceremonies at Woodfordia for over 20 years, creating the first fire for the festival ceremonies. At an early age, Rick witnessed firsthand his people’s plight and resolved to share in their struggle for cultural and physical survival, becoming politically active at a young age. A professional artist and educator, he has created public sculptures, ochre murals and ceremonies internationally, with his works being acquired by the National Gallery of Australia and the Queensland Art Gallery.
