Tegan Murdock, Ngumpie Weaving (pronounced Numbpie): I am a proud member of the Barkindtji tribe originating from Coomealla, Lake Victoria and the Mungo regions from my mothers ancestors. While also belonging to the Yorta Yorta and Dhudaroah tribes originating from the Shepparton area from my father’s ancestors. I feel a deep sense of gratitude every time I weave. Weaving wasn’t something that was around when I was younger, my elders faced a lot of trauma from colonisation, they feared sharing culture so a lot of knowledge has been lost. I want to use my weaving to break down barriers – so we can sit, connect and learn about each others journey while learning about my beautiful culture at the same time.
