Details

We would like to show our respect and acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land, of elders past and present and we respectfully tell their stories as painted by DJ Mate.

This specially commissioned artwork was created by DJ Mate, an award-winning contemporary Indigenous artist. 'Celebrations' takes us on a journey through the milestones of our lives from a perspective unique to Indigenous Australians.

The story progresses around the box as we move through and celebrate the stages of life.

Birth - The land and the people are one: it is believed that we emerged from natural land features.

Family & Traditions - Family or kinship is at the heart of Indigenous society; older family members pass on the traditions.

Traditional Coming of Age - Some boys around 13 experienced walkabout. Girls learnt the culinary and medicinal knowledge of plants.

Corroboree - Celebrates the Dreamtime through dance, music and costume.  Used both for ritual purposes and to convey history.

Smoking Ceremony - A gesture of goodwill, bringing people together, and a blessing of healing and peace.

Return to Dreaming - At the end of the journey it is believed we return to the land and become part of the eternal stream of life and the Dreaming.

A description of each illustration and its significance is included on the back so you can share this beautiful story with your class. 

Our 'Celebrations Indigenous' Book Box is ideal for storing your Indigenous resources, learning about the environment or simply adding some beautiful Australian colour to your classroom or library.
