contemporary adaptations through painting, weaving and textiles. She works closely with her female kin to revive, nurture and preserve cultural knowledge and practice. Carmichael is a descendant of the Ngugi people, one of three clans who are the traditional custodians of Quandamooka, also known as Yoolooburrabee—people of the sand and sea. Quandamooka Country comprises the waters and lands of and around Moreton Bay, south-east Queensland.
