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:

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.
