About the fabric and artwork : Fire Country Dreaming by Lynette Nampijinpa Granites

“An old man, 'lungkarda', of the Jampijinpa skin group, lived on a hill with his two Jangala sons. The old man would claim blindness and send his two boys out to hunt, while gone the old man would go and hunt and eat everything he found. One day his two sons hunted a Kangaroo after extensive tracking. Upon return they were told this Kangaroo was sacred to the 'lungkarda', this angered the old man terribly. The next time the boys went out the old man put his fire sticks to the ground, unleashing a relentless bush fire that chased them across the lands. Exhausted, the boys managed to outrun the flames, only to be consumed by the fire when it reappeared out of the blue-tongued lizard hole.“

About the dress maker:

My husband and daughter are Aboriginal; so it has always been important to me to teach Mia about her heritage, culture and family history. So I feel very honoured and proud to create this collection of clothing in collaboration with Miniland Dolls Australia and 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.

Kim.
