Yinarr Maramali

Waan Basket (Crow) - Sophie Honess

$160

Waan (Crow) 

Waan was the first to have fire and kept it as a secret, hiding it in a small bag. One day, the fire fell to the ground. Waan tried to put it out but was unsuccessful - forever turning his white feathers black ad giving fire to the Gomeroi People. Waan is very clever and great at solving problems. 

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.’
