Welcome to David Dahwurr Hudson (HonDUniv)
Who is David

David Hudson’s life reflects his love and belief in Aboriginal culture. He comes from the Ewamin (oo-rah-min)/Western Yalangi (people of the north east coast of Australia) so it is natural that he makes his home in Cairns in the midst of the beautiful reef and rainforest.

David has travelled extensively throughout Australia and the World, including Europe, Asia, Oceania and the USA as a solo artist and with world renowned dance troupe, “Tjapukai”, which he co-founded and Greek composer Yanni. He promotes awareness of Aboriginal culture and tradition wherever he travels.

David has a diverse career and is internationally renowned as a musician, artist, entertainer, and presenter. His work is considered “contemporary” yet has a very definite traditional influence.

David is inspired by all the natural elements of his environment and with each work he creates, he wholeheartedly gives a part of himself and his culture.

  • On Wednesday March 26th 2014 James Cook University presented David with an Honorary doctorate for his outstanding service and distinguished public contribution to the northern Queensland community through his promotion of Aboriginal culture and reconciliation through art, music and dance.
  • Exceptional service to the University and a role model who has influenced the thinking and general well-being of humanity.
  • David continues to undertake motivational and cultural workshops and speaking, artwork and customised didgeridoos.
