Gulaga Mountain - Pregnant Woman with Feet in the Sea
Paintings (with Elder permission) by Caroline Josephs Ph.D. -- who has known and worked with Dulumunmun for over twenty years, taking people into country to hear his stories, sometimes weaving stories of her experiences with Indigenous people with his, or leading creative workshops arising from storytellings in country.
"Gulaga is our weather forecaster; she lets us know when we’re
going to get a bit of water from Father Sky.
Gulaga is a woman’s mountain as much as a man’s mountain
because of the creation of the woman first and the man second.
Gulaga is a place of wisdom, a place of tranquillity.
Gulaga mountain calls you back, spiritually and mentally, a place
of sacredness -- a sacred text of the land. It holds the story of
creation of the Yuin Nation.
It is one of the wonders of the world.
