    Mili & Yunga

    Mili is a stinging tree which is often covered in Yunga, green ants. My painting is about the Yunga building their nest on the leaves of the Mili.

    My grandmother was a Nyungkul woman, and she lived in Wujal Wujal. In Nyungkul the language name for the Green ant is Yunga. My grandmother taught us how to collect it for medicine and to eat  when people are sick with flu.

    Mili, stinging tree is my totem.
