AUNTY ZETA MOOKIE LONG SLEEVE T-SHIRT FITTED
Pay respect to First People’s ancestral spirits with this glow-in-the-dark long sleeve tee—created in collaboration with Aunty Zeta Thomson (Wurundjeri/Yorta Yorta).
Locally made, the tee uses organic cotton with a design based on Thomson’s iconic 2021 MELBOURNE ART TRAMS work, Mookies Around the Waterhole.
“‘Mookie’ means spirit in Yorta Yorta. In our culture, visitors would call out to the Mookies of the Ancestors as they walked through the bush announcing that they were coming on to Country. They would meet and gather at sacred waterholes for cultural business. After the ceremony the travellers would begin their journey across Country to the next place, ‘galyan woka ngana buraya moya’—‘a beautiful place far, far away’. This work teaches us to respect Country and honour our Ancestors.”
