My tiwi sister Gerardine Tungatalum
I want to honour the memory of my Tiwi sister Gerardine Tungatalum, on this International Women's Day. Gerardine, a proud traditional Tiwi Elder, was loved and respected by all who knew her, and was my friend and mentor on my early visits to the Tiwi Islands. There are more portraits of Gerardine and other Tiwi women, in my Limited Edition Indigenous Australians Gallery . This photograph was taken in 1989.
