Rodeo and art may seem like an unlikely match, but the third Mount Isa Mines Indigenous Rodeo Championships in Queensland will unite riders and artists with the unveiling of Kiakati, an Indigenous Arts and Culture Precinct at Buchanan Park.

Kiakati is a Kalkadoon word meaning “to make”, and the Precinct will be home to artworks, artefacts and classes hosted by Elders and artists from across the region.
