About this product

“There are two quicksand holes at Kinoedjanga. It’s a dangerous place, people can’t go there. Country will smell your different sweat and drown you, it’ll kill you. The sea eagles watch over those holes, one black and one white, duwa and yidditja. The white eagle is djungkay for that place, he looks after it. They sit on gungarnin (digging sticks). Miparr is my djarno. The eagles travelled from Gupanga, Wurdeja and all the way to Malnjangarnak.” - David Brian 

Maningrida comes from the Ndjébbana phrase mane djang karrirra, meaning ‘the place where the totemic ancestors transformed.’ The community is located in Central Arnhem Land, a region defined by linguistic and cultural diversity, home to twelve language groups, 110 clans and 32 outstations or homelands.
