Its NAIDOC Week from 8th - 15th November here in Australia. NAIDOC originally stood for ‘National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee’. This committee was once responsible for organising national activities during NAIDOC Week and its acronym has since become the name of the week itself. Week celebrations are held across Australia each year to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This years theme is Always Was, Always Will Be. which recognises that First Nations people have occupied and cared for this continent for over 65,000 years.

To celebrate NAIDOC Week here at Black Pepper, we have released our Indigenous Artwork Collection. The Wedge-Tailed Eagle Dreaming Bandana is the artwork of Glorine Nungarrayi Martin. 

The Warlawurru Jukurrpa (wedge-tailed eagle dreaming) belongs to two places called Wakurlpa and Yuwarli, both to the north of Yuendumu. At Yuwarli, the site which is shown here, a Warlawurru made a ‘mina’ (nest) in a tree and laid two ‘ngipiri’ (eggs). From this place the ‘warlawurru’ (wedge-tailed eagle) would fly around searching for prey, up to the size of young kangaroos and emus. ‘Warlawurru’ (wedge-tailed eagle) would also travel to Ngatirri, near Purturlu, looking for food. The custodians for the Warlawurru Jukurrpa (wedge-tailed eagle dreaming) are Japaljarri/Jungarrayi men and Napaljarri/Nungarrayi women. This Jukurrpa is an important part of the initiation ceremonies for young men of the Japaljarri and Jungarrayi. In Warlpiri paintings, traditional symbols are used to represent the Jukurrpa and particular sites. In paintings depicting this Dreaming, ‘warlawurru’ (wedge-tailed eagle) nests are typically represented by a concentration of circles and their ‘ngipiri’ (eggs) and ‘wirliya’ (tracks) are often shown as symbols representations of these.

Black Pepper Dogwear acknowledges the traditional owners of the country throughout Australia and their continuing connection to land, culture and community. We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging. To learn more about NAIDOC week visit www.naidoc.org.au

Product Care

▸ As all our products are handmade, we recommend cleaning our bandanas with a cold/warm hand wash and hang dry in the shade.

▸ Alternatively you can also place the bandanas in a washing machine on a gentle cold/warm machine wash, or for extra protection place the bandanas in a washing bag in the washing machine. Washing bags are designed to protect delicate clothing items in the washing machine.

▸ Once dry you can use a gentle warm iron as the bandanas may become wrinkled after washing and wear.
