• The Maruku Arts centre was established in 1984 by and for Aboriginal people in
response to a growing need for the effective co-ordination of marketing and
support services to Aboriginal craftspeople living in the region. Located at the
Mutitjulu Community within Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Maruku operated as a
regional centre providing a service to some 800 Pitjantjatjara, Yankunytjatjara
and Ngaanyatjara craftspeople living in communities and homeland centres to the
west, south and east of Uluru.
Maruku employs highly skilled staff who devote much of their time to travelling
through the region liaising with craftspeople and buying their works. These
works are then returned to the Maruku warehouse where they are documented and
sold either locally through the Maruku retail outlet at Uluru-Kata Tjuta
National Park, wholesale to shops and galleries throughout Australia or through
Maruku Arts is 100% Aboriginal owned co-operative. The centre at Uluru operates
in the Mutitjulu homelands with the assistance of Mutitjulu Council. All income
from sales is returned to the centre and utilised to continue the purchasing and
marketing of crafts.

A bitter struggle - posted October 25, 2010, this article reflects on the
hand over ceremony of Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park to its
traditional owners, and the bitterness the Northern Territory Government of the
time twisted the truth. Ironically, the truth was that whilst the traditional
owners were handed the ownership of the park, they held complete control for
five minutes, before signing the agreement to lease the park back to the
Australian National Parks and Wildlife Service.
