Early life

Harney was born between 1932 and 1936 at Brandy Bottle Creek, on Wllleroo Station, NT. His biological father was the famous Irish-Australian writer William Edward Harney, but he was brought up in a traditional Aboriginal community by his adopted Aboriginal father, Joe Jomornji, and mother. His sister was taken as part of the stolen generation but he escaped because his mother covered him in charcoal to hide his whiteness of skin.[3]

Aboriginal teachings and awards

Harney is well-known as an advocate and ambassador for Aboriginal Australians, and has made several international tours promoting knowledge of Aboriginal Australians. He also appears regularly on TV, radio, and film, often speaking on the subject of Aboriginal Astronomy. In 2003 he published, with Hugh Cairns, "Dark Sparklers", detailing the astronomy embedded in the Wardaman culture.[4] He has been a finalist several times in the National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Award.[5] In August 2009 he featured in a two-man The First Astronomers show with astrophysicist Ray Norris at the Darwin Festival[6], and in November 2009 he was prominent in the Message Stick [7] program on Aboriginal Astronomy produced by ABC TV.
