STORY BEHIND THE ART:
My Artwork for this year NAIDOC 2021, the two hands in unity for both First Nation People of this land Australia, the Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders. Their country and islands have suffered immensely from global warming and climate changes. This have affected their traditional country, homelands and islands, as such in the Torres Strait islands which have directly impacted low level islands with rising sea level. We also see extreme weather patterns around Australia, causing great impact on our people’s lives. The dhoeri and didgeridoo represent our dances and songs, which can aide in healing our land. We are resilient people, who connect spiritually to our country and Islands through our kinship, language, traditions and Lore, this entwines our First Nation people. The different totemic/clan designs represent our identity. The hands with the pouring of water symbolise cleansing and regrowth, in harmony for the future generation of our people.
