: Corby grew up watching his Uncle Bill Wilson and his cousins painting. Corky paints My Dreamtime, Walkabout and Fish Traps at Brewarrina in the North West of New South Wales. Corky is a Baarkinjii Man.
The Barkindji people were predominant around the lower Darling, which they called the Barka, Barkindji literally meaning "Darling folk". The homelands of the Barkindji extended from what is now Wentworth in the Riverina Bioregion, northward through the Murray Darling Depression Bioregion and into the Darling Riverine Plains Bioregion beyond Wilcannia. They included a number of tribes they had complex laws governing their use of land and rivers, relations between men and women, intiation and interaction with other tribes some tribes moving in from Central Australia. Those on the rivers made canoes, fish traps, nets for wild fowl, caught yabbies, crayfish tracked bees for honey. In times of drought they would move into other areas and a battle would take place. The Baarkinjii were known for their superior weaponry – the men of the Murray made their spears more lethal by placing them in decomposing flesh.
