Dhirridhirri Basket (Willie Wagtail) - Sophie Honess
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. YinarrMaramali is the home of Milaan Dhigaraa (Milaan's Birds).
YinarrMaramali: GomeroiDhigaraagal shines a spotlight over the tradition and skill of Gomeroiyinarrgal (women)in regional New South Wales. Inspired by nativedhigaraa (birds) and their stories, Gomeroi Dhigaraagal is a celebration of colour and community.
YinarrMaramali is a Gomeroi women's business dedicated to supporting Community and Country wellbeing through their weaving practice. Based in Tamworth, YinarrMaramali is a cultural hub and place of learning as artists weave their stories through handwoven creations and artworks. The name ‘YinarrMaramali’ means ‘made by Gomeroi women’s hands.’
