About the fabric and artwork
Mina Mina Dreaming
By Pauline Napangardi Gallagher
This 'Jukurrpa' (Dreaming) comes from Mina Mina, an important women's Dreaming site - far to the west of Yuendumu. In the Dreamtime, ancestral women danced at Mina Mina and 'karlangu' (digging sticks) rose from the ground. The women collected these travelled east dancing, digging for bush tucker, collecting 'ngalyipi' (snake vine) and creating many places as they went along their travels. As the women travelled they collected 'jintiparnta' (desert truffle) moving far beyond Warlpiri country and as far as Queensland. In Warlpiri paintings, traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa and other elements.
About the dress maker:
Made by Kimberley from Made for Mia. Kimberley's husband and daughter are Aboriginal; so it has always been important to her to teach her daughter Mia about her heritage, culture and family history.
Children learn through play; so incorporating these new Australian Aboriginal Miniland dolls and this collection of clothing featuring Aboriginal artwork is an exciting step towards improving all children’s knowledge and understanding of the Aboriginal history and culture.
