Miimi and Buwaarr, Mother and Baby

Greenwood, Melissa

An ode to the mother/baby relationship and ties to family and land.

Being your miimi (mother) is the most precious gift life can give.
When you were born you opened my heart as wide as the ocean.

Join Miimi (Mother) as she shares stories with her Buwaarr (baby) about the environment, language and totems; passing on the wisdom of Gumbaynggirr culture and a mother’s hopes for baby’s future.

A lyrical and heart-stirring series by Gumbaynggirr artist Melissa Greenwood, creator of Miimi Marraal, Mother Earth, My Little Barlaagany (Sunshine) and Giinagay Gaagal, Hello Ocean.
