“I feel happy and proud. It comes from our Country. I like it and it’s good to see people like it too.”
The warnumamalya women of the Groote Archipelago are the proud custodians of traditional practices that have been passed down from grandmothers to mothers for generations. Artists work with locally collected mangkurrkw (pandanus), seeds, shells and contemporary mediums to create unique art that celebrate the old ways and contemporary takes on life on Country.
