Our people have been through a lot, they have toil and fought against oppression, and we are still fighting the injustice. We have come this far, our people, we are resilient and have endured hardships, but we never gave up.
My artwork display the different patterns which represent people from different clans and tribal group whether indigenous or non-indigenous coming together in unison, ‘stop marking time in one spot’ it’s time to Get Up! challenge the system for change, this is depicted with the clenched fist holding the war club (Gaba Gaba) rising from the land, our ancestors were warriors, Time to Stand Up! make our voice heard. The Torres Strait Island Dhari featured relates to Identity, as we move forward, Show Up! to address issues within our communities, climate changes, protection of our country both land and sea and sacred sites. In solidarity for our future generations.
