Bunjil, the Creator Spirit, Indigenous Round 2019

 Bunjil the wedgetail eagle is the Creator Spirit and ancestral being of the Kulin Nation of central Victoria, one of two ancestor moieties, the other being Waa the Crow – The Keeper of Water and Wind.

The Melbourne Tigers are represented through the claw marks.

The possum skin cloak is used in ceremony and can be decorated with ochre or burned. Story is told through the markings on each patch. The tails of the possums hang from the upper and lower pelts.

The netting is used for hunting and collecting food source, for catching fish. In this case – the basketball.  The downwards arrow symbols represent the journey to ceremony – the game. The waves represent the water around bay area, Melbourne Tigers home. The spears and shield represent the battle of the game. The gathering circle on the lower left represents the clans coming together for ceremony. The mountains around Victoria are marked beside that. And lastly, Waa The Crow, The Keeper of Water and Wind is represented by the three crow feathers.
