This painting depicts Dharug Country’s river system and the fifteen clans that made up our people over the 6000km² area from the mouth of the Hawkesbury River right out west to Mount Victoria, and all the areas around Campbelltown and Liverpool, where I was born. My parents, grandparents, great grandparents and my ancestors were born there too. The fifteen different symbols represent the clans throughout this Country. It was broken into two different tribes: the Katungal (sea people) and the Tomahawk people or palendra. The Tomahawk people worked to the west and hunted kangaroo and other land animals. The Katungal people lived off the sea, eating mainly fish and shellfish. These two clans made up the fifteen tribes and worked as one, the Dharug people, my people.
