'Baalaa Kaarl Killelbirriny: His Hearth and Home of the Sergeant Ant' explores the Cultural Landscapes of the Kellerberrin Noongar, Cliff Humphries. This thesis demonstrates how colonial cartography and its legacy of blank-spaces is privileged over Noongar place naming and the continuity of localised Noongar song and story traditions. The contribution of this study is in showing how Noongar space can be re-engaged and reinterpreted, revealing lands of nourishment and lands possessing a lingua franca beyond a colonial logic and straight lines.
