Story: My Father's Country

“My Dad was born on the edge of Kabararrji, south of Bentinck Island. So he carries the name Kabararrjingathi, his Country – that's why he is called "Gabori”, the English corruption of the place name. There's lots of grass there called malbaa that the women used to gather to make woven grass bags called mijilda.” - Helena Gabori

"I'm glad I started painting as it gives me something to do and I really enjoy coming to the Art Centre with the other artists and having jokes and fun while we paint. I'm closer to my Dad's side of the family than Mum's so I paint my father's father and mother's country a lot.”
