Christine is deeply connected to her Country and culture, inheriting her mother’s Dreaming stories that focuses on the various bush foods that are both traditionally hunted, celebrated in ceremony and connected to the Dreamtime creation spirits. Beyond their value as a food source, animals serve as cultural images of totemic power which are used to demonstrate connection to country and the ongoing presence of the ancestors/ancestral beings. As with songlines, animal tracks such as Budgerigar, Possum, and Emu are used to map country and delineate custodial responsibilities, laws and ancestry.
