💫 N E W B R E E D 💫 woahhhhh I’ve been busy with all the great things coming up ⚡️and so grateful for the opportunities to continue to share my people’s stories with @sydneydanceco @carriageworks 📸 thanks @pedrogreig for the epic snaps #WakkaWakka#SDCNewBreed#choreographer#sydneydancecompany
was lucky enough to catch up with my Kombumerri family whilst home in QLD 🍃 I taught some workshops to students for NAIDOC alongside my lovely cousins @emjb92 and @ranger_clinton and here’s Clinton showing @warru_ and I the men’s totem on country 🦅 (note our awkwardness keeping our hands well away!?) 😬 #notscaredatall#naidoc2018#oncountry#kombumerri#wedgetaileagle
Evelyn Barbara Graham 💫 My Great Grandmother, a Kombumerri woman coming from a long line of more incredibly resilient women. I wasn’t able to meet her but recently have had the pleasure of making more connections back with her family. I see them all carrying this special spirit and passing on knowledge to the next generations 🖤💛♥️ #becauseofherwecan#naidoc#throwback#kombumerri
Meeeeee and Mum @warru_ showing me the ropes since 86 💫 #reflections#naidoc2018 another strong woman, a ‘can do’ woman that makes it happen, whatever she puts her mind to ✊🏽 Mum has taught me about my culture, family history and at a young age encouraged me to take pride in my heritage and acknowledging all of my bloodlines no matter what people think (hair colour / skin colour is usually a tough one for some to get past) ✌🏽✌🏼 She taught me to go for all the things I could ever want to achieve and supported me every step of the way. Another strong woman contributing to the continuum of culture and passing it on to the next generation. An incredible role model in many ways #becauseofher#naidocweek2018#wakkawakka#kombumerri
my time in the Bell Tower happened to coincide with #naidocweek2018 ... time has passed but I still find myself reflecting on some incredible women in my life #gratitude 🖤 Aunty Violet Mcdermott (my Great Grandfather’s sister), proud Wakka Wakka woman and absolute rock in the family and Winifred Wagg (my Grandmother), a Kombumerri Wakka Wakka woman who I never had the chance to meet. I know I wouldn’t have had the opportunities I have had today if it weren’t for both of these strong women pushing through all of the adversity they faced during those times #becauseofher#naidocweek
