POSSUM SKIN CLOAK

 

 Until October 2022

 

In 2021, the Jervis Bay Maritime Museum commissioned highly respected Gorawarl-Wandandian artist Aunty Julie Freeman to make a possum skin cloak for our collection, with her daughter, Markeeta Freeman. This exhibition is a wonderful introduction into a cultural aspect of Aboriginal life full of meaning and understanding.

 

The cloaks were important to Aboriginal Culture in south-eastern  Australia and tell stories of family, belonging, and place. Inspired by the recent cloak making revival, this cloak sits at the intersection of traditional practice and contemporary art, embodying old and new techniques to tell stories of culture, country and identity. It is a cloak made on Country, for Country.

 

 

The pelts were sourced from NZ.

CULLUNGHUTTI

CLOSES 31ST  AUGUST

 

Created by NSW Parks and Wildlife Service and the Jerrinja Aboriginal community, Cullunghutti tells the story of the resilience and survival of the Jerrinja People and their continuous connection to country.

Cullunghutti (Coolangatta Mountain) is a deeply sacred site for the Jerrinja Aboriginal people, who believe the mountain is a place for stepping off into the afterlife. Since the arrival of Europeans in the Shoalhaven in the 1820s, the Jerrinja People have increasingly been dispossessed of the land surrounding Cullunghutti, culminating in the establishment of Roseby Park Aboriginal Reserve in 1900. This exhibition details that history in stark detail, in a way that is becoming more widely accepted.
