This artwork represents Caring for Country. Jara means country, yaga means work, and nya means caring. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People have always advocated for country. Our voices and input are so vital regarding managing and protecting land and water. Our knowledge systems which are linked to our long-term interactions with stories of significant places within our country. The use of vibrant colour speaks of our old people's philosophy of life and cultural teachings that are important for all to consider within their interactions with the environment.

It's great to see contemporary and traditional practices being used by mob in Caring for Country strategies. Never underestimate our cultural knowledge because we have successfully used these practises for thousands of years.
If you want to heal country, then pay attention to First Nations Voices. This artwork hopes to capture the past and express deeply felt concerns regarding desecration of ancient sites and the struggle to reclaim cultural context.
