"Waijung" - Art Piece

We were pleased to welcome Brad Currie and Waylene Currie to present to our staff some recent projects Mununjali and our school community have been working on together. Waylene, a Mununjali artist, has created a message stick to use when reciting the ‘Acknowledgement of Country’, as well as an original art piece titled ‘Waijung’. Waijung is language for mother, and this piece represents ‘Mother Earth – Mother Mary’, and our connection to Mununjali country.

Once the copyright process is complete, we will have an installation ceremony with the broader community to acknowledge this incredible art piece. Waylene has provided additional commentary to go with the art piece which explains the local community link with the imagery and art. For example, Gullinini - the Red Bill Water hen and ‘Mununjali Totem’, represents nurturing like Mother Mary.
