Goanna Dreaming


Throughout my cultural journey there have been many twists and turns. The more open I am in embracing my culture, the more it helps me be a strong, proud Indigenous man. As I learn and paint, the more connected I become to community, our stories, our history and the Country we long for and call home. A feeling of healing gives me a stronger connection to myself, our Elders and our ancestors.
The goanna was once a warrior who walked upon this land through the Dreamtime and roams through the constellations in the night sky. If we can open our eyes through culture and Dreamtime, we can open our spirit and heal ourselves back to family and Country. We can do this even by looking into the sky and connecting back to our ancestor and Country.
The green symbols are connected ceremonial sites guiding us along our cultural journey. On the top and bottom edges, our mob (Elders past and present) walks with us in our ancestors’ footprints.
We are all welcome home on Country wherever we are. This is my Dreaming.
