Miss S. Chiguna was a Walmajarri artist who came from Djugerari in the desert country in the East Kimberley. Bush coconuts are actually an insect gall that grows into a ‘coconut fruit’ on a bloodwood tree. The coconut is broken off the tree and cracked open to eat and drink the juicy insides. It is an excellent source of bush tukka, really high in protein. It is best found in the Dry Season -May-September.
With Miss Chiguna’s family’s permission, we continue to celebrate her life through her art.
