Dominica Williams is a young Kwini and Gaambera woman from Kalumburu community. 

“My family is from Kalumburu - my grandmother is Wunambal Gaambera, and my great great grandmother is Kwini. I grew up here in Kalumburu but I move around, between Broome, Derby and Kalumburu. 

I like coming to the Strong Women’s Centre - I like to do things like sewing, making earrings and jewellery.”

Art story: Lanky

“I did the lanky design for Magpie Goose in 2018, it’s a brolga that became a part of our community. Sylvester found him in the bush when he was a little chick - and he grew him up here in the community. Since then, he was always around, he never left the community. Lanky was part of the community - he was part of us. He was like the next person. The kids loved to play with him. He was a community friend. He would even come to the discos! The dogs chased him a lot. He had a family too of his own. He had a few chicks - with his girlfriend. He would go down to the billabong and wait for his family to come visit him.

When his owner (Sylvester) passed away; after everyone left the grave, he stuck around. He came and sat down at the grave. I think he knew: his dad had passed on. He still came round visiting with his little family. A lot of people fed him. He was OK in everybody's houses. People here were used to him. He was around for three or four years - when I was a teenager.”  

“I reckon Lanky will look good on clothes - people would be proud of him on clothes.”

The fabric of this top is do soft and beautiful to wear , the dizing is true to size and this top is especially flattering for someone such as myself who is carrying some extra weight around the waistline.

Congratulations Dominica and Magpie Goose

I am the proud owner of a reversible Lanky jacket, purchased a few weeks ago from Magpie Goose. The brolga motif, designed by Dominica Williams, is magnificent. She is a great artist with a very bright future ahead and I hope to see many more of her designs. In the Canberra winter, I wear the jacket on top of a thick jumper and has been admired by everyone. My congratulations to Dominica and to Magpie Goose for bringing these wonderful designs to the rest of Australia and hopefully, to the world. All the best for the future, Amalia
