The Story behind the Design
This piece is titled “Yingir People” which means Saltwater people.
Zoey says “Being from Bundjalung Nation we are Saltwater people. Our diet mostly came from the sea or the rivers and creeks. I’ve tried to show in this art how beautiful and blue the water is and its many different inlets that lead into other little creeks. The larger circle represents a swimming hole where the Jarjums (children) would play. I’ve painted this in purple to show how fun this place is. The greener sections represent the healing properties that saltwater has. My Elders have all told me to jump in the water if I had something wrong with me and I still to this day try to get in the Saltwater as much as I can"
The Yingir People Rug is a wonderful resource for play-based learning areas and for children to engage, connect to the stories and in turn, spark conversation. To clean the rug, spot wash with warm soapy water using a damp cloth or soft brush and airdry. The rugs can also be steam cleaned. This beautiful rug measures 2m x 3m with an 8mm pile featuring a 100% superfine polyester surface and non-slip backing.
