Description

Dorothy has painted beautiful design that represents the land; her country. All of Dorothy's Dreamtime stories belong to her country, Atnwengerrp. Awelye (women's ceremonies) are performed by Dorothy and the aboriginal women of her country to demonstrate respect for their country and the total well-being and health of their community. Designs are painted onto their bodies, the women sing and dance and stir up the dust as they perform the Awelye for their country. Country is very important.
