Abstract

In this paper, we invite you on a recuperative story-finding journey across the Roper Region of the Northern Territory, Australia. The stories we are tracking are scattered across Ngalakgan Country, embedded in places, actions, memories and song. Engaging with these stories in a recuperative mode requires diverse methods that help us respond to our entanglements and responsibilities as part of more-than-human worlds. As we lead you across the hills and riverbanks of Ngalakgan Country, we discuss our way of working together as an Indigenous, non-Indigenous and more-than-human collaboration, focusing on our co-creative multisensory methods for engaging with each other, with Country and with research. The stories we share highlight the transformative potential of co-creative multisensory methods to contribute to decolonizing processes and refresh the practice of geography. The strategies we use to communicate these methods include images interwoven with text, interspersed links leading to videos and soundscapes of Country, use of Roper Kriol language wherever possible and quotes spaced to reflect their spoken form.
