Joe Skeen Snr was a little boy when his parents were removed from their traditional homelands and sent to the Palm Island Aboriginal Reserve in North Queensland. In the early 1940`s they were moved again to Cherbourg in South East Queensland.

Joe Snr. would often accompany his father when he was hired out to local farmers to work, mostly at cane cutting. It was then that his father taught him how to identify black wattle roots and how to fashion those roots into boomerangs. Among the many people that bought his fathers boomerangs were American servicemen.

When he was 21 Joe returned to Cherbourg to visit his siblings and he saw an opportunity to make a living from the work and he started selling boomerangs to farmers before moving to Brisbane in 1960. This was around the same time that the Government-owned curio shop that was to become Queensland Aboriginal Creations opened, which he became a major supplier.

Murra Wolka ws born in 1990 to carry on the tradition of supplying authentic aboriginal products to retail customers.
