Footsteps on Country

This artwork represents footsteps on Bundjalung country. “Remembering our ancestors who walked before us. Connection to country is part of our identity and telling our ancestors dreamtime stories is a way of keeping our spiritual connection to the land and waterways alive through generations.”

Bush Medicine

This artwork represents the many varieties of bush medicines which Indigenous Australians have used for thousands of years. “My ancestors would use bush medicines to treat illnesses such as common cold and flu. We also use native plants to perform smoking ceremonies for spiritual healing and cleanse country and people from bad spirits.”

Coastal Waters

“This painting represents the coastal waters for the Bundjalung people. The waterways are very important to Aboriginal people as it is the home to a lot of our main food source, such as fish, crabs, oysters, etc. The food sources are all found in the ocean, rivers, creeks other natural water features such as streams, lakes, waterholes.”

Connection To Land

“This painting represents the Bundjalung nation. I’m connected to the Bundjalung country through my ancestors. As a proud Bundjalung man I’m learning stories and passing them on to my children so the spiritual connection to the land continues. Our land is loved, needed, and cared for, and our land loves, needs, and cares for our peoples as well. Our land is family, culture and it’s our identity. Our people need our land for a variety of things such as spiritually, mentally and physically.”

Mangroves At Night

This artwork represents the mangroves at night. “Growing up on Bundjalung Country, I would go with my brothers and other family members and walk through the mangroves at night to hunt for mud crabs by using a spear. We would also sit on the bank of Currumbin Creek and Fish. The mangroves are very important to our people as it is home to many food sources such as fish, crabs, oysters, etc.”

Spiritual Connection

“It represents the spiritual connection of the Indigenous peoples of Australia. We have strong spiritual connection to our ancestors, the lands, waterways, skies, animals, plants and all living things. Connecting to our spirit through cultural practices gives us our identity and ensures health and well-being. These include ceremonies, rituals, paintings, storytelling, dance, songs, etc. The Dreamtime is the core of Aboriginal spiritual belief, they say it has no beginning and no end. Growing up as a young Aboriginal man I was told after we passed on our spirit returns to the Dreamtime.

”This artwork is a collaboration between the artist Steven Bekue, Woods Furniture and Cranbourne South Primary School.

Women On Country

“This artwork represents women on country; respect and appreciation for all the women in our lives and everything they do for us.Women On Country would have cultural roles to help each other to gather and prepare food, take care of the children, knowledge of bush medicines, how to care and survive on the land and would carry out special women ceremonies.

Women in Aboriginal culture are well respected for their role as life givers.”
