“Share in our song and dance (yuar warrai) as we pass on the stories and language of our people. Drawing inspiration from our elder generation who taught us only to take what we needed and always give back to mother earth, keeping the balance between nature and man” Lyndon Davis
Our connection and kinship to our Ancestors continues when we embrace our traditions of dance and ceremony, and show the local community the history and spirit of where they live. Lyndon plays the Yidaki and shares stories of the ancestors with such respect and authenticity, and I feel embodies the responsibility of passing this on to his children and the community. I have painted Lyndon in his traditional ceremonial dress and the Smokey mist around him is representative of the spirits of the ancestors as they give him the courage, wisdom and strength to share the richness of Culture. His presence is commanding and yet never confronting.
