STORY

Warramba is Wiradjuri for Turtle. A turtle is a tranquil animal, he cares for the estuaries and makes sure everything stays in balance. This painting represents a turtle on a journey, travelling through cultural sites under the sea. His centre painted is where he holds all his knowledge, as he learns and travels, his gut will grow bigger and bigger.

Learning culture is about humility, respect and patience. Humility involves humbling oneself as a learner when it comes to understanding culture. Approach learning about culture as a lifelong goal and process, you never stop learning. Respect involves acknowledging our elders and teachers but also giving back to country to show appreciation to our ancestors.

It is important that we try to recreate these morals and stories through our art, songs and dance. So that we can maintain and continue our culture whilst keeping our own personal connection, which allows us to live these morals through our daily life.
