HEAR THEIR STORIES. SUPPORT THEIR DREAMS. WEAR THEIR ART.
Created by First Nations artist Beau Pennefather Motlop, a Jirrbal (Aboriginal), Wagedoegam Koedal (Torres Strait Islander) and Ngapuhi (Aotearoa/New Zealand) man.
I believe the way forward against the oppression and mistreatment of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is to come together. All races and ethnicities as one through acknowledgment, respect, and understanding. Our voices and actions united towards systemic change, challenging racist and discriminatory behaviour and creating a pathway to a Treaty with the Indigenous peoples of Australia.
The linked hands represent unity, the mixed cultures represented is symbolic of unifying. The circular motifs represent equality between cultures. The patterns are focusing on people and their unique differences while being woven together like creeks, rivers, waves, tides and currents. All waters run into the sea, reaching "One Water".
