Daughters of sunrise

Proud Yolngu woman Magnolia Maymuru lives in the Gove Peninsula in north-east Arnhem Land, a unique part of the Northern Territory known as sunrise country, which is fitting, because just as the world embarks on a new beginning, so too has Magnolia been reborn this year after the birth of her daughter, Djarraran. As the model speaks to award-winning Yuwaalaraay writer and storyteller Nardi Simpson about the strong and grounding connection sacred mornings in her Country offer her, they also reflect upon the duality of sunrises – and new beginnings – being both ancient and new. Fashion directed by Christine Centenera.
