ARTIST STATEMENT

I am an Aboriginal artist, a generational master weaver, and I work with natural fibre and other materials to weave, in this case, a piece of wearable art. My Aboriginal name is Jule Yarra Minj which means Little River Girl and her totem is the Writcharuki (willy-willy wagtail), a totem of the great Ngarrinjeri nation. My weaving carries a storyline that is handed down from my ancestors. This wearable art, The Milloo Warrior Cloak, represents a warrior of the Milloo (Murray River) people. The Kangaroo skin and Emu feathers woven into the cloak depict strength of a warrior in their bid to catch food for their families.  The kangaroo and emu are also the emblems as the Australian coat of arms.
