Miss Chiguna was a Walmajarri woman from Djugerari, a small community approximately 200 km outside of Fitzroy Crossing. Miss Chiguna had a cheeky vibrancy to her and brought a smile to those around her. With her family’s permission, we are happy to continue to celebrate her life through her art.
Mabu Mayi shows the bush tukka that Miss Chiguna found out on her Country in Djugerari. You can see bush turkey, grasshoppers and various seeds and nuts.
