To my people, colour and spirituality are intertwined, and colour gives meaning to the everyday aspects of our traditional lives, like gathering food and medicines and forecasting the weather.

When our Creators, the male and female Rainbow Serpents first emerged from the earth, they were transparent. They gave themselves colour to protect them from the sun.

We still use the healing colours of ochre in our ceremonies, red for men and yellow for women.’
