Rowena is a Kija woman living in Broome and through her Grandmother she is regarded as the custodian of the Lansdowne Ranges in the East Kimberley. This design speaks of Rowena’s connections to this daam (country) and shows the layout of that particular country. It is Kija daam that is bordered by Mirriwoong country to the east and Worla country to the west.
