Our artwork deals with the impact that the Aboriginal children suffered when forced from their families into institutions. The female Aboriginals were taught to think and act ‘white’. Our heroine in this artwork is silenced through her hands covering her mouth – yet her culture and heritage still remain a dominant force that is shown through the Aboriginal flag painted on her hands. The work is about how these Indigenous people are trying to t into today’s society and how they are an important piece of the puzzle.
