My name is Djätji Garrawurra. I am one of the grandsons for the late Joe Djalalingba Yunupingu. During my grandfather’s time he worked for Dhimurru Rangers. He was a founder of Dhimurru and its management to look after the land, sea and country. A few years went by and it made my grandfather think about a project with telling the story of the miyapanu (sea turtle). We need to create an awareness and understanding of the miyapanu and how we can preserve and respect through our Yolŋu knowledge and beliefs. There are many clan stories and songs that can educate us about the life of a miyapanu and its environment. This is what my artwork is about.
