Yinarr Maramali

Weaving Warabah


A little big yarn by 5 Gomeroi children sharing a story about time spent on Country learning to weave with their mothers.

Written in Gomeroi/Gamilaroi language, Weaving Warrabah can be read or sung and includes a CD. This book was created by the weavers of Yinarr Maramali with Gomeroi Murri Marc Sutherland as part of the Weaving Warrabah Project.

The Weaving Warrabah Project saw the creation of a 3-meter-long woven sculpture in honor of Warrabah (Short Neck Turtle) and their home. Over many months more than 100 Gomeroi yinarrgal and miyaygal gathered in their communities to weave, using local lomandra grasses each wove a circle representing a piece of their own story. Each circle is important, it connects us and has contributed to the creation of Warrabah, whose woven shell embodies our kinship.
