Adelaide based artist Peter Drew has started a campaign to stick 1000 posters of Monga Khan, a cameleer, all over Australia.

Cameleers from the Indian subcontinent who arrived in Australia post-1950s played a crucial role for almost 70 years connecting states and people. A new campaign by Peter Drew - What is a real AUSSIE? - wishes to give the contribution of cameleers its rightful place in Aussie mythology.
