Media Statement

23 June 2022

It is with profound sadness that the Yothu Yindi Foundation mourns the passing of our star lady.

A celebrated artist, she was also a cherished member of the Garma family who had a joyous smile for everyone she met.

Her bark paintings featured in a major exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria earlier this year.

She loved sharing her knowledge and wisdom, helping others to gain insight into the beauty of Yolngu culture and customs.

Her infectious energy and enthusiasm helped inspire our Youth Forum participants, and she cared for many of our female guests over the years through the Dilthan Yolngunha Women’s Healing program.

We grieve her passing, and send our deepest condolences to her family, and all who were touched by her.
