The story of Garranjini:

"This artwork represents my Traditional land - Garranjini - which has been continuously threatened by Mining and Energy companies. My family has been fighting against these big corporations for decades.

This land holds my story. Our big story is about three women who came from the ocean near Ngukurr in the Gulf of Carpentaria. They travelled a long way and then created our place, the hills and fresh water Country. I am linked to that story and it links me to my place because as my granny said,

"Ngurruwani Gudanji-marndi maga guda gurijba iligirra gamamjani." 
(Gudanji people are from the fresh water and hill country.)

Those three women made our place and then made us. It's my home. I grew up on this land, it's me.
