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.
Part of learning culture is about humility, respect and patience. Humility involves humbling oneself as a learner when it comes to understanding culture. I’ve learnt to listen without judgement and approach learning culture as a lifelong goal and process, you never stop learning. I feel as I’ve opened myself to culture, I’ve grown to better understand myself and understand my obligations to the Earth for a more sustainable way of life.
As Aboriginal people, it is important we 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.
