About the fabric and artwork
Maureen Indigenous Women Travelling| By Maureen Hudson Nampajimpa
This painting represents the travels of many groups of women during Tjukurpa in a region known as Yarrungunyi, on Mount Doreen Station west of Yuendumu. All of the different "skin" groups are represented, their camp sites being the circles, and the connecting lines the route of their journeys of creation. This is my mother's country.
Maureen Hudson Nampijinpa was born on an Aboriginal owned cattle station, Yuelamu, in the Northern Territory. She worked as a teacher’s assistant and began painting in 1981. Maureen’s artworks depict traditional Warlpiri Dreamtime stories. Her painting's originate from Warlukulongu - her father's and grandfather's country. Her ancestral Dreaming's include emu, fire,and women's ceremonies, which have been passed down from her mother's involvement in traditional ceremony.
Maureen has been an Artist in Residence at the Mulgara Gallery in Yulara (Uluru- Ayers Rock)
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.
