The Kalkadoon Tribal Council and Cultural Keeping Place is a centre for the preservation of the culture and heritage of the Kalkadoon people. It is a display centre and a keeping place for Aboriginal artefacts.
The Kalkadoons, a proud fierce warlike tribe ruled the Emu Foot Province, today known as Mount Isa City. Today, descendants of this proud and majestic tribe are available for a chat and a lesson in their culture.
Battle Mountain; the Kalkadoons waged a war against the white settler for about 100 years. Their final battle on Battle Mountain in 1884 saw the decline of the Kalkadoon nation.
