Mäpuru testimonials

“It was for me, an amazing and humbling experience to learn from these beautiful women, to simply sit, observe and for a short time become part of the rhythms of Mäpuru.” Claire, July 2011 Trip Participant

“I will never forget the amazing women I met at Mäpuru, sharing the laughter and tears with them, stumbling through mangroves, pulling up mangrove worms and touching ever so slightly the depth of Yolngu culture. How fortunate am I?” Rose, July 2011 Trip Participant

“We sit here, weaving, knowing you are thinking about us the same way we are thinking about you…” Margaret (Mäpuru elder).
