Community: Kubin : QLD

Flora Warria is a Mualgal woman whose ancestral lands are around Wug – current day St Pauls Community on Mua Island. Flora uses natural materials and resources collected locally for her weaving and dyeing, bringing traditional knowledge and practices into her work. She is committed to passing on that knowledge to younger people through her work, so that they can pass that knowledge along to their own children.

‘The knowledge I carry today has been passed down to me through oral traditions going back to ancestral times. It is still a big part of our lives today. That’s why I am so passionate about passing it on.’

Flora has a Cert 4 in Audio Engineering and is a board member of Ngalmun Lagau Minaral.
