 Doll-making is an intrinsic part of many Indigenous cultures across the world including communities

in Australia Canada and South Africa.  In all three cultures doll-making represents a transfer

of cultural knowledge - the building of capacity and the reclaiming of Indigenous Identity on both a local 

and a collective level.
 The benefits of these outcomes are important to supporting health and well-being in 

Indigenous communities.

RE-STITCHING CULTURE showcases examples of doll-making from three Indigenous groups

that continue to strengthen their local communities.  

Specifically the Gomeroi Yarning dolls (Australia) which encourage the sharing of the oral personal narratives 

the Six Nations Cornhusk dolls (Canada) to promote the transmission of cultural teachings

and the Siyazama Sulu dolls ( South Africa) used to create community 

support networks through locally relevant HIV/AIDS awareness


RE-STITCHING CULTURE is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW, and is a joint project between the Tamworth Regional Gallery, the Gomeroi Gaaynggal Arts Health Program, and The University Gallery, University of Newcastle.

Bill (Nulla-Muthubudoo)Speedy and partner Judith Russell have moved to Corindi Beach from Dimboola Victoria to take on the bush tucker cafe at Yarrawarra Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Bill is a Gwamu man from Bollon near Cunnamulla in  SouthWest Queensland.

Bill and Judith are passionate about promoting native foods.  "We are trying to create a menu that is sugar free and promotes the health benefits of eating native products with a focus on ethical native meats such as kangaroo & emu."  We believe that too many of our people suffer from Sugar Diabetes as there is far too much sugar present in our everyday foods.

Bush Tucker PlatterWHAT'S ON THE MENU?

  • Smoked Kangaroo salad
  • Kangaroo Burger
  • Pumpkin & native thyme soup
  • Bush Tucker Pies including Pepperberry Roo Lemon Myrtle Corcodile and quandong (native peach)
  • Lemon myrtle or wattle seed muffins
  • Bush Tucker platter (Selection of Crocodile/Emu/Kangaroo & native Dukkah)
  • Great Coffee and assorted native teas 

They are ambassadors for Outback Pride and use their products in "The Cafe".  Outback Pride supports approximately 3000 Indigenous people in farming and cultivation of native foods.
