Gapuwiyak Culture and Arts

My name is Mavis Djulibing Marrkula. I was born on the 4 June 1955 in Arnhemland. My language is Gupapuyngu. I am from the Marrkula clan. My mother taught me how to weave. I am a traditional land owner of Gapuwiyak. I like going out collecting pandanus and dyes. I also like to collect bush foods like yams, wild potatoes and other bush foods. I go out with my friends, like Lesley Wininingu and Helen Djaypila. I love weaving baskets and mats and I can also make string bags
