Dhirridhirri (Willie Wagtail) 

Dhirridhirri was once a beautiful woman and Bibii the tree creeper wanted to show his love and admiration for her. Bibii created a rainbow for Dhirridhirri and put in the sky for all to see. Dhirridhirri loves to show off and is known to be a messenger bird. 

Dhigaraa (birds) are special to Gamilaroi people and feature in many of our stories. Yinarr Maramali is the home of Milaan Dhigaraa (Milaan's Birds). 

Yinarr MaramaliGomeroi Dhigaraagal shines a spotlight over the tradition and skill of Gomeroi yinarrgal (women) in regional New South Wales. Inspired by native dhigaraa (birds) and their stories, Gomeroi Dhigaraagal is a celebration of colour and community.  

Yinarr Maramali is a Gomeroi women's business dedicated to supporting Community and Country wellbeing through their weaving practice. Based in Tamworth, Yinarr Maramali is a cultural hub and place of learning as artists weave their stories through handwoven creations and artworks. The name ‘Yinarr Maramali’ means ‘made by Gomeroi women’s hands.’
