Created by First Nations artist Judith Anya Samson, a Putijarra woman.
"When I paint I think about my old people, my elders, and the stories they used to tell me- about walking around in Country. They used to ...walk around there, in our place. And now I'm painting it in my own style. In my own way, I tell these stories for the old people. The ones who have passed away. Remembering my old people makes me feel strong.
We drink water at Puntawarri. We clean and dig that waterhole. This Country is Puntawarri. My nanna, [decease Martumili artist Dadda Samson], taught me to paint this Country. Puntawarri is important because it is my pop’s, my nannas' husband’s, place. They camped there and went hunting for goanna or anything, kangaroo or turkey. At Puntawarri there are all the waterholes. Good hunting this Country. There is still some Rabbit Proof Fence there."

This hoodie is so soft and snuggly, the art work is too deadly
My team mate and I got lots if compliments on this t shirt. It is very long in the XXL size that I bought. Mainly because I am short and XXL.
I am very happy with my NAIDOC 2023 hoodie. I buy one each year from Life Apparel and am never disappointed. Warm, comfortable, ethically and sustainably sourced materials.

Great shirt. Received positive comments from others when wearing it. Helped give voice to our first Australians.
T-shirt, Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! | black
Love the polo shirt. The artwork is beautiful and the shirt is exactly as it was described. I ordered a larger size than I needed just in case it was a small fit but this was unnecessary.
I purchased the dreamtime shirt due to its great design and the phenemonal artwork and dot work and the stories behind it. The red in the centre reminds me of the outback sands and the handprints with the aboriginal flag colours are a nice touch.
