Goanna Dreaming by Melissa Napangardi Williams

This Jukurrpa tells the story of a Japangardi man named Wamaru who travelled south from Jarrardajarrayi to Yarripilangu. When Wamaru arrived he approached a group of 'karnta' (women) that were sitting in a circle on the ground. Wanting to woo a woman within the circle, a Nungarrari woman named Yurlkurinyi, but was the wrong skin for him. By tribal law this woman was his mother-in-law and their relationship would be Taboo. Wamaru wooed the woman and developed a relationship, they travelled up Hill in Yarripilangu together. When they arrived the earth turned to 'ngunjungju' (white ochre) and the man turned himself and the karnta into 'wardapi' (goannas)

About the dress maker: Kim is the owner and creator behind Made for Mia. Her husband and daughter are Aboriginal; so it has always been important to her to teach Mia about her heritage, culture and family history. Kim feels very honoured and proud to create this collection of clothing in collaboration with Miniland Dolls Australia for the launch of their new Australian Aboriginal Miniland dolls. 

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.
