{REGION PROFILE} 
KIMBERLEY WA

The Kimberley is a region of approximately 420,000 square kilometres (262500 square miles), bordering the Indian Ocean in the northwest corner of Australia. It is a rugged landscape of great variety, from the mountain plateaus of the Durack and King Leopold ranges, to huge inhospitable areas such as the Tanami and Great Sandy Deserts, the majestic beauty of the Bungle Bungles, and extensive river systems such as the Fitzroy River. Climate wise, the Northern half of the Kimberley is dominated by the seasonal monsoonal rains controlled by ancestral beings known as Wandjina. To the south and West, Aridity increases, these areas are dominated by the Tanami and Great Sandy Deserts. The Kimberley is one of the major areas for rock art in Australia, it is the home of the famous Bradshaw and Wandjina figures which are still painted today. Due to it's isolation and the rugged terrain it was not until the 1880s that European colonisation began in the Kimberley. During this period, towns such as Fitzroy crossing were established. Colonisation also brought much violence to the Kimberley region with a number of massacres in the area, up until the early 20th century.

For thousands of years during the Eel Season when the BURRA made their way down the rivers and creeks to the ocean to breed. The local Darug people of the Burramattagal Clan gathered together with other clans from near and far for a special time of ceremony- to feast, trade goods and share stories and food. 
The annual Eel Festival at Elizabeth Farm in Parramatta (now in its 3rd year) keeps that tradition alive today. People from all walks of life gather together on sacred lands to share, learn, remember and celebrate.
The Festival celebrates Parramatta's namesake, the Eel (BURRA) and its significance to the local clans.
DCAC were privileged to be a part of this years event which was held on the 11th of March 2018. 
Two of our Custodians, Leanne and Rhiannon, performed the Welcome to Country together for the opening of the Festival in both Darug and English. They also had a stall with plenty of beautiful artwork and ran Darug language workshops throughout the day for people of all ages to learn some everyday words in the Darug language. Leanne even had an interview on air for the radio station Triple J! 
It was a wonderful day had by all and we are looking forward to next years Eel Festival and to seeing many more people there! 👣🍃👋🏾👍🏾 Photo credit: Alex Wisser for Sydney Living Museums and Rhiannon Wright.

“Walk 🆙 part 1 & 2” : ranting about my lil “door to door operation” side ting. 
It’s not a secret that people are anti-door-to-door salesmen, which wasn’t at all what I was doing. Wasnt selling a damn thing. But I was anticipating some conflict or push “🔙” to rolling up on people’s property unannounced. It was the complete opposite lol. Lot’s of friendly acknowledgement. This got me thinking of a few things:

A) in canada “🇨🇦” we’re a friendly bunch for the most part. Even being Black, 6’0 and “intimidating” looking, I wasn’t perceived as a “threat”. Had this been the US I prob woulda been received very differently. 
B) With whats going on in the #firstnations community, the “friendly reception” isnt always the case

C) dont go into things expecting the worst. Expect the best. 
D) #ottawa and it’s mixed income social planning forces people to interact with other ethnicities and cultures (still a ways to go, but still) ——another post about this later today

Nimbin Rocks.
The Nimbin Rocks are volcanic extrusions of Rhyolite left over from the Mount Warning Tweed Volcano that erupted around 20 million years ago. As part of an eroded dyke of the volcano, Nimbin Rocks are located just outside the present day caldera wall about 20 kilometres from Mount Warning and three kilometres from Nimbin Village. They are an extremely significant cultural site to the local Bundjalung tribe who believe the rocks were home to the Nmbngee, or Clever Men. They were also the initiation grounds for young boys.

Last year, the community of Woorabinda in Queensland needed a boost so they formed the Kulgoodah Dancers. They’ve gone on to perform at the opening ceremony of the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.

Read the story of how the community collaborated to set up the dance troupe, link in bio.

Mina mina is near Lake Mackay. It's main dreaming story is the karrpanu, the digging stick, famously recorded in the Kanakurlangu clan group dreaming songline. Warlpiri call that songline, yupunju. The women travelled eastward into Anmatyerre tribe lands in the Jukurrpa, by being, the sky and earth, night and day women created or gave birth to almost everything bringing them into existence. From raining clouds, waterholes, waterways, everything was danced and sung into existence. Then everything was left to be dug up with the karrpanu so one could feed on the knowledge about everything within the Warlpiri homelands. The ultimate karrpanu is the pointer stars near the Southern Cross stars. When the pointer star touches down in the horizon then the Warlpiri learning cycle begins again.

{ARTWORK PROFILE}

Lily Karadada is a prolific and well-established Wandjina painter from the township of Kalumburu, on the northwest tip of Western Australia. This remote part of the Kimberley is sometimes referred to as ‘Wandjina Country’. The enigmatic Wandjina figures, painted and maintained for generations in the surrounding caves and rock galleries, have become emblematic of Dreamtime mystery. The much older but unrelated Bradshaw figures are also found in this area, as is the powerful Rainbow Serpent. For the local tribes, the Wandjina ancestor spirits were the pivot of their natural and cultural world. Each clan group traces its decent from a distinct cave area. Lily was born near the Prince Regent River and her bush name, Mindindil, means 'bubbles'. This name refers to the time when her father saw bubbles emerging in the freshwater spring and announced to his wife, “Ah, what this one here, he comes out bubble? Ah! Might be kid.” Many aeons ago (during the Dreamtime), after their creative acts were done, the Wandjina lay down in the caves, leaving their life giving essence in the cave paintings as they returned to their home in the clouds. They are known as rainmakers and bring fertility to the land. They are usually shown either in groups or surrounded by associated totemic species. Always depicted frontally, their large eyes dominate in a mouthless face, sometimes on top of a simple robe-like body, with no apparent limbs or feet. Radiating lines around the eyes or in a halo around the head represent the lightning that heralds the storm. The first lightning strike renders their mouths tightly closed. If their mouths were left open, we are told, it would rain incessantly, carrying everything away in an absolute torrent. Wandjina float vertically on the rock surface or may be shown lying down. They are precious ancient icons, and their contemporary re-representation has allowed for their preservation and the survival of a unique culture.

Watched a group of kinder kids learn about aboriginal culture and have a go at hand prints onto rock at @royalbotanicgardensvic yesterday.

With a little paint left behind after they'd gone, we did the same.

I find indigenous cultures fascinating. You too?

When the artist Rosie King Tarku (1934) breaks the code, embraces a deep connection with her traditional land with a  lot of material on the linen, deep effects and transparency of the brush evoking the earth and a strong link with Jairnka, the water hole where she grow up in the Australian desert. I love that ! ————————— Format : 90 x 90 cm

Rosie King Tarku born in 1934 at a Jumu called Pyinjarra in the Great Sandy Desert. When she left the desert, they walked for a long time with her husband and older sister. It was a very long way to arrive at Old Bililluna. I did not know english at that time. We had no shoes, we were wearing yakapiri (old people long ago in the desert they used to make sandals to protect feet from the hot ground).
This painting evokes my country call Jairnka where I grow up there with my families mother and father. The snake lives under neath. The waterhole gives us water every year every month.

Collection :
National Museum of Australia
Fitzroy Crossing Hospital
Private collections

This painting is currently exhibited at our Brussels Gallery with in the exhibition « Our country keeps us » in partnership with Mangkaja Arts.

A day of inculturation activities to build our Aboriginal cultural competency - with the rare chance to examine a traditional possum fur cloak and hunting tools. A valuable, immersive experience. 
Thanks to St Paul’s Cathedral for organising this for their staff and volunteers as part of their Reconciliation Action Plan.

Rise Again

The sun has no thoughts on what greets it each day, it rises to show its light and its warmth on all that it meets. 
It’s very easy to find that you fall into the everyday routine without the passion that you were born with. A child can’t wait til the sun is up, to rise again to a new day of adventure. 
We sometimes wonder where they get all that energy, question maybe should be, when did we lose it. #awake&dreaming #bigambul #beachlife #aboriginalart #aboriginalartist #aboriginalculture #redcliffeart #riseagain #sunrise
