STORY - Burrkunda 1

"In the old days our people would make scars on our body called Burrkunda, to connect us to our family and as a sign of coming of age. Markings were made by our Elders cutting us with a sharp shell and our Mothers had to say where the marking would be on our body. Today we continue to make markings by painting paper and canvas. Together we make these markings, strengthening our connection to family and Country. Today we can share this, to a bigger world so others would know about the past." - Agnes Kohler
