Emu Dreaming - Utinat Ritjinguthinha

My name is Brooke Sutton and I am a contemporary Indigenous artist from the Kalkadoon people from Mount Isa in Queensland. This painting is called “Utinat Ritjinguthinha” in the Kalkadoon language which means “Emu Dreaming”.

Aboriginal people have looked at the stars and used them to follow their dreaming tracks or songlines for thousands of years and had a very good understanding of the motions of the sun, the moon, the planets and the stars throughout the year. Stories about the stars and constellations were passed down from generation to generation and this painting tells the story of the Emu in the sky and the stone emu nests.
