Ku’ Ngoyngk Thaathan’ by Bevan Namponan
The Story Place of the Ku’ associated with the Apalech ceremonial group is located in the south of the Wik and Kugu region at Eeremangk near the mouth of the Knox River.
This story links the land and the sea and is a tale of transformation where the Ku’ (Ancestral being or totem), who had travelled from the distant Northern Territory to Cape York Peninsula, leaves the land, enters Knox River and becomes Nyiingkuchen, the Freshwater Shark.
Meet the Artist
Arabella Walker is from the maternal line of Wulli Wulli the Auburn Hawkwood people and an emerging female contemporary Aboriginal artist; her practice conveys significant topics of First Nations histories with a focus on the challenge of being an Aboriginal woman living in the Colony.
Walker deals with this challenge by weaving Indigenous ways of knowing and being into knowledge of culture and protocols, connections, and traditions, through a variety of media. Walker’s work expresses ideas, cultural knowledge and histories, stories, and cultural connections.
