WANGKA KUTJARA, TJUKURPA KUTJU

Drawing on the 2018 National NAIDOC theme Because of her, we can!, Wangka Kutjara, Tjukurpa Kutju showcased the mother-daughter relationship of Anangu women Puna Yanima and Linda Puna for the first time in a public gallery setting. The duo’s work depicts the sacred sites and everyday life of the Mimili community and surrounding Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands (APY) in the northwest of South Australia. Focusing on the strength and importance of women in community and the significance of passing knowledge on to the next generation, the exhibition highlighted the centrality of women in the cultural, social and political spheres, both locally and nationally.
