PROUDLY FIRST NATIONS OWNED & OPERATED
This stunning design titled 'Yugari' Pipi by Bundjalung artist Holly Sanders.
The Story Behind the Design
For thousands of years Bundjalung people have harvested Yugari as an important source of protein. Pipis were pulled from the sand by performing a pipi dance. Pipis sit just below the surface of the sand and to get them up, you push your feet into the sand and do the pipi dance or shuffle. Once harvested, the pipis and were cooked on hot coals and then eaten on the beach. This evidence can be readily seen in the many ancient middens – mounds of discarded shells – that dot the dunes around Country. First Nations Saltwater People continue to maintain a connection to these areas through stories and practices of fishing, worming and collecting pipis
